Lighted Blimp south of Disney Land

While driving in Costa Mesa (Orange County), CA, at about 19:00 (7:00PM), I saw what appeared to be a lighted blimp in the northern sky. Costa Mesa is about 10-15 miles south of Anaheim, the location of Disney Land. It seemed to be somewhere in the air space southwest of the Disney Land Area.

As I was driving, I only saw the lighted blimp for a few moments and at a distance but it appeared to be nothing else but a blimp.

I submitted this report because the object could very have been reported as a UFO if it was viewed from a greater distance.
