Driving Home on 4th of july and saw a red glowing fireball in the sky, stopped to take a video and snap a picture

My wife and I were driving home from her family's 4th of july party. We were about 5 minutes away from home, I was in the passenger seat, and all of sudden i saw this glowing red orb/fireball come flying from south west, going above our car and continuing north.

I had my wife pull over, and we both got out of the car. I quickly took my iphone and captured a video, and took a picture with it. I do not believe this was a "Chinese" lantern or anthing similar to that.

In the picture, even though it was with iphone, you can see the shape of the object and tell there was a energy field around it. The video is not the greatest, but you can see the pattern of its flight path, straight across like a craft flying, not flying high into the sky like a balloon rising.
