Yellow egg shaped object in the eastern sky; flew south

I was on my way home from buying a soda from a nearby business' soda machine when I looked up and saw an egg shaped object in the eastern sky. The point of it was facing the south. It was a solid yellow color, and was completely lit up.

As soon as I saw it, it started to move south, and quickly changed color to match the color of the sky. I could only see the outline as it moved south, behind a big cumulus cloud. It didn’t come out the other side of the cloud.
