Round fireball passing through the sky of Hickory Hills Illinois

On the evening of 8/24/2013, at 10:40 P.M I was sitting in my screen porch and saw a round, orange object through the trees. It appeared to me that it was a flying fireball and I called my wife and daughter to confirm what I have seen. All three of us watched it drift through the sky then slowly drop. It was moving from East to West for about thirty seconds.
