bright orange object moving across horizon

at 8:25 pm on 5/11, my wife and i were going to a local store in folsom ,ca. my wife noticed a long glowing yellow-orange "slit"looking or "line/disk" looking object towards the west during sunset moving across the horizon heading south. while driving, it appeared to be still. we pulled over and got out of the car to get a better look. it was definitly moving. we watched it for a few minutes, trying to figure out what it was, when it suddenly vanished completely.

im not sure where this object was located exactly, maybe over the bay area or ocean. it was pretty far away. if anyone else seen this or has any information on what it might have been, please let us know!!!!

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witnesses might have been observing a "contrail" behind a high-altitude aircraft, which was being illuminated in the western sky by the setting Sun. Just a guess, since we did not see the display. PD))
