Orange fireball seen hovering in London sky before vanishing

I was walking my dog at around 11pm in the South Hampstead area of London, heading west on Goldhurst Terrace. I looked up and saw what looked like a round, orange fireball. Considering the distance, it looked as though it might be quite large.

It hovered for about 30 seconds, and then just completely vanished, evaporated. There were faint traces of it left afterward, as though it may have exploded, or just left tiny fragments of itself.

I am in the UK for just a few months. I have also noticed what seems to have been a heavy spraying of what appeared to be chemtrails over this area, if they are in fact doing this. I am a woman in my 40's, a translator by profession, with US/UK dual nationality.
