Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Orange-white light traveling approx. from South to North at about 25 to 30 degrees above horizon, very fast. No blinking or pulsing to N horiz.

I was driving home from work at 23:43 through Sacramento on East bound I-80, heading almost due East, when I noticed a very bright orange-white light directly in front of me at about 25 to 30 degrees above the horizon. It traversed the sky from directly in front of me to the horizon in approx. 4-5 seconds. It did not burn and break up like a meteor, nor did it have any other lights around it like aircraft recognition lights. It moved in a straight line like a satellite, but was travelling much to fast. I even rolled down my window to make sure I wasn't seeing some sort of reflection off my windshield, I was still able to observe the object with my window down.
