red glowing sphere or northwest las vegas (lone Mountain & 215)

object traveling from south to north very low in the sky. Witnessed from our second story balcony. There was a fire earlier today in the mountains just north west of Summerlin parkway, so I initially thought it was a helicopter. The closer it came, the more I realized this was not a helicopter. I called my wife to the balcony as the object traveled directly over our home. Not a sound. It appeared spherical in shape with a very deep glowing red. the bottom of the object has a much brighter orange light. The object was moving pretty slowly as it passed directly above us. I watched it continue north and seemed to climb and the light slowly disappeared.
