Make particles move around object?

Hi!

I've been trying to figure out how to make particles move around an object.

Here's the scenario: I need to make a fireball that looks as if it's crashing down. I have a sphere in the middle of it, but I need the particles to move around the sphere to give the illusion that it's a fireball moving really fast.

I've got everything else I need, but I'm just stumped on this one.

Any suggestions on what I could do? Is this even possible?

are you using Thinking Particles or the default particles?

Thinking particles, because I'm using pyroclusters.

if you are using the sphere as the emitter you can just set the sphere as a collider as well so (assuming you are using planar wind of something) as they blow backwards they collide off the sphere.
