I was in my house and heard my husband yelling for me to come outside, he then told me to look into the sky and there was a large glowing fireball-like object coming from the west. My son also witnessed the object. It seemed to slow down and then changed course and started moving north. Was very large, about the size of a basketball in the sky from our observation point. It was just under the cloud cover and was very bright red/orange/yellow and pulsating. Once the object changed course to the north it appeared to grow smaller, but we could still see that it was pulsating and grew even smaller as it traveled farther away. I then thought to ask my husband for his phone and videoed the object a short time, but after it was almost out of view. It then disappeared into the cloud cover. During the entire event it seemed to change speed and move faster and slower and pulsated the entire time. My husband states that before I came outside it was larger and he actually thought he was witnessing a plane crash because it looked like a huge fireball. I would say from the time my husband noticed the object until we could no longer see it was about 5 minutes.
