Balloon shaped bright gold object emitting gold sparks in Burbank, CA

At 8 pm I took my dog out to my backyard. I saw a medium sized gold colored ball shape emitting gold sparks. I have a telescope outside so I prepared my scope to get a closer look. As soon as I aimed my scope the gold light either burned up or disappeared. I think that happended because it took me a while to get my eyepiece in the house and aim the telescope though. I have seen this object before and I am wondering if it is some kind of test balloon. I saw the same object about a year and a half ago. The object was in the sky over the Hollywood Hills which is in the southerly direction from my home. There was a small plane or helicopter nearby the object. The object was silent.
