Gold object seen in the sky near Lakeland, FL, very early on November 6th.

My husband and I were driving on I-4 east, coming from Tampa, on our way home to Orlando. I had received a call on my cell phone, and was driving about 5 minutes past the last exit for Lakeland when my husband grabbed my arm and pointed at something in the sky. The object was round with a short trail. It was gold in color and bright, both the trail and the round object. It seemed very far away. We thought it was a comet or shooting star at first, but then the trail instantly turned the best way to describe it...the round object kept moving for a few seconds, then also instantly disappeared. I'm interested if anyone else saw this.
