Pale glowing orange, low flying, spherical object

Drving home after dropping a friend off at around 1:30 in the morning we were in a small neighborhood in a wooded portion of town when I saw a small(diameter less than 1m) spherical object that was glowing a pale orange/ yellow color move across the path of the car a ways ahead and then proceed quickly up and over the trees westward away from the nearby ocean. I immediately was silent and quickly tried to discern what kind of astronomical event had just occured. I then turned to my two friends (one of whom is an experienced sky jumper and has done jumps at night) and asked if they saw the "meteor or whatever that was". When they both broke their silence and said they had saw it as well, we all knew that it was no meteor, considering how close it was, its appearance, and its relatively slow speed. We all had watched a meteor shower on the beach before. None of us could come up with a legitimate explanation for the object and we were all a little freaked out. I am typing this about 14 hours later and have heard no other news of the sphere and am hoping someone will see this report and confirm it.
