Orange Sphere over Northwest Florida

Went out for a smoke. Looked up. Moon was very bright, no clouds. Object came from the north. If you put your hands side by side, it was four hand spaces west of the moon. Object moved south very fast. Faster than a plane or satellite. Was not a shooting star either. It did not leave a tail like shooting stars do. Object appeared to be in earth's atmosphere. Moon appeared about three fingers wide. Object appeared a bit larger, probably six fingers wide. Object was bright, yellow-orange in color. Object appeared to have a solid center (bright, yellow-orange)with a hallo or ring farther out. It just streaked acroos the sky from north to south, then it was gone. Almost like it appeared from thin air and vanished into nothing. There was no sound before, during or after and no vapor trail or tail of any kind. I would be very interested to know if any radar picked up anything on that date and time.
