Large orange ball of light over London late 1990's

I was driving along side the Thames, just next to Putney Bridge, whilest sitting in traffic, I observed a large orange coloured ball, low and close just over the other side of the river (London side). There was a part of the circle missing, much as an eclipse appears, to the right side. The object looked like the moon or the sun, but in completely the wrong part of the sky, shining through a slight fog/haze. I watched it as long as the traffic stayed still, it did not move, nor as far as I could hear, did it make a sound. It did not look like anything I had ever seen before. I wonder if anyone else has seen something like this or can explain. Unfortunately it is a few years ago and the date is probably not correct.
