Orange Sphere moves across sky and leaves green trail the entire lenght of the sky that remained long after the object was gone!

It was a very clear summer night/early morning. We were driving back from Lake Mead to Las Vegas Nevada where we all lived at the time. The desert was pitch black and the stars were very bright. As we were about 3/4 of the way to Las Vegas on Lake Mead Blvd. I noticed a bright Orange sphere shaped object moving in a straight line across the sky. The object was leaving a green trail of something behind it as it moved. The first thing I thought of was a "plasma trail". It was moving to slowly to be a meteor or a satellite, but to fast to be an aircraft. I called out to the others to make sure that I wasn't seeing things, and they confirmed that it was there. None of us could identify it. I wanted the driver to pull over so I could get out to take a better look at it while not moving but no one else wanted to stop. I guess I was more fascinated then scared, but I could feel my heart pounding. There was no sound at all that I could tell, but the object seemed rather high in the sky. The green trail now extended half way across the sky as this object kept moving in a straight line without stoping, slowing, or speeding up. I continued to watch the object as it moved the entire length of the sky from one horizon to the other, about 10-15 minutes total. The green trail remained visible in the sky until we hit the lights of the city, long after the object had been gone.
