Oval Shaped Firey Object Near Concord Naval Weapons Station

I was driving South down Willow Pass Road along the Naval Weapons Station, and to the West I saw a slightly mis-shaped oval object in the sky glowing as if on fire. It lasted for quite a few seconds (10 maybe), and from the outside in quickly faded out of visibility. The object seemed to be hovering and not moving and was very large, though seemingly distant (If I had held my index and thumb around the edges of the object, it would have been about two inches). I have never in my life seen anything like this. I do not believe it was a meteor, as it did not appear to be traveling. My only speculation is that perhaps it was an airplane on fire, but then again, I did not see smoke, nor did I hear any report of a fallen aircraft.
