Detailed Description

Driving southwest bound on S Tryon St. and Billy graham pkwy intersection i saw a red glowing orb slightly bigger than a star come down at the speed of a shooting star. at first I thought “fire ball” or very big meteor, but then when it fell to about 20 degrees above the horizon it stopped for a half second and abruptly changed direction to the right (northwest). this happened +/- 5 miles south of the charlotte airport which does not allow drones (plus drones don’t descend at the speed of a shooting star). I’m a commercial airline pilot and know what airplanes look like, this was not it, either. when it moved right it went behind the trees and I lost sight of it. did anyone else see this?
