It looked like an airplane dressed up with cloth

I am 52 years old and have never seen anything like this. My family and I were watching fireworks and there appeared to be one that seemed to be continuing. Eventually we realized it was not a firework.

Overhead we do have a general lane where airplanes are constantly traveling. This seemed to be traveling in this lane, at a much faster pace. The object from tip to tip seem to be as wide as the lights on the tips of an jet. The object that we saw was orangeish in color. It was bright, but not overly bright. The sun had setted. The object did not make any noise, but seemed quite high. The object to me appeared as if it might have been a plane, but enshrouded in fabric, such as a balloon and lite up.

It did not appear that it had any light.

My wife said it looked like a fireball, without a streak. She said it was white in the center, with yellow around it and red around that, but blended.
