Bright orange firball traveling southeast.

My husband and I were standing outside staring at the airplanes going by in the sky, when out of nowhere a fireball looking object appeared heading towards the southeast.

At first I thought it was an airplane on fire, but it stayed the same elevation and continued to stay the same elevation. We kept watching it and it started to dim a little and the blinked out completely then reappeared and then disappeared again only this time it stayed disappeared. I got the feeling when it was first present to us that it was hurt. Not sure what it was but I have a strong feeling it wasn't an airplane or comet.

Also I forgot to mention that it was at the same elevation as a military fighter jet would be but very big and very bright orange and it flickered like a flame.
