Bright orange light over E. Lancaster Desert

Standing in the desert at 65th street west and Ave J, looking to the east I saw a bright orange object floating in a downward trajectory. At first I thought it was a southwest passanger airliner headed to Burbank, however the color became a glaring bright orange. I then thought it was the reflection of the sun setting behind me, although I could not account for a reflection from the sun, as the sun was falling behind the mountains at this time. Its downward trajectory then sped up and I thought it was a plane going down. It stopped floating hung for a few seconds and then disappeared. It was either a huge meteor burnign in the earth's atmosphere or something from Edwards.
