Early morning fireball going east to west.

My son and I witnessed a fireball in the sky going from east to west. It was orange in color and we could see smaller pieces breaking off of it. It didn't seem to leave a trail behind it.

We were facing south and it was not near the sunrise.

It was seen at dawn but it was almost daylight. We were deer hunting and could see to the end of the 20 acre field it flew over with no problem.

The glowing stopped before it went behind the trees so I assume it burn up or broke through the atmosphere. It did not seem to fizzle out it just stopped burning and was still about the same size as when it started. The sighting lasted about 3-5 seconds.
