Ball of Fire over Ramsey, MN seen by 2.

My son (4 years old) and I were watching the city fireworks from our house. We were on the sidewalk when a 'ball of fire' or 'bronze type fire' came floating half way from the distance of the fireworks (approximation .5 miles - 1 mile East of the fireworks). I instantly took out my phone to video the object and right as I hit play the fire ball which seemed to be moving as a balloon would in the wind - simply vanished. No noise. I would have to believe a LOT of other people saw this thing considering it was during the city fire works! I asked my son, "Do you think that's an airplane" and his response was exactly what I was thinking - "that's not an airplane"! The object was a circle and looked like a glowing bronze fireball. I viewed it for about 30-45 seconds before it disappeared.
