Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 min.
Orange sphere with a tail pointing up.

I was driving west and saw a bright orange sphere with a tail. It was lower than the new moon which was also low on the horizon in the west. It was in full view for several minutes and I lost sight of it when I entered a lower spot in the road and arrived home, where it was no longer visible. I also saw what appeared to be the same thing in the middle of the night about 2 nights ago.
