I was entering the driveway of my home (my house sits up on a slight hill) - pushed the garage door opener - the door went up about 3 feet and the power went off. Approximately 2 seconds later I witnessed an Orb / Egg shaped transluscent object (orange on the outer edges, yellow inside the orange, a whiteish center with a clear light in the middle). The object streaked across the sky (approximately 15-20 feet above my home) from West to East. The object was approximately 10 feet in diameter. It left a redish streak that faded away rapidly.
