Orange/golden orb floats above Antelope/North Highlands, CA before dissappearing as small plane approached.

At approx 10pm last nighr, my son and I witnessed an orange globe floating from over McClellan AFB towards Antelope, CA. It seemed to float slowly as if creeping or surveying the area below from a height of small planes like crop planes go at, which is like 500 to 1,000 feet.

Anyway there's an airport out on Elverta Road and a small plane from there was on direct route with this orange globe and the globe was about two times bigger than it, as the small plane was getting closer to it, the globe stopped and stood still, and all of a sudden it vanished before our eyes! Like someone just turned off a flashlight!

I know that pilot saw it. He/she was headed straight for it, since it was in their direct path! Then, poof! Gone! We stared and scoped out the night sky, but it was GONE!

The small plane continued its course and went straight through the point where the globe had been just a minute ago. Weird, but I guess pilots must be used to this by now!
