hovering orange/yellow eliptical () with hazy lights over south denver metro

Driving home down Quincy ave, I saw what appeared to be an elliptical orange/yellow shape far in the distance to the west / southwest. It had a foggy light dawning from it. I nearly hit the curb staring at it.

from the short period I saw it, it was just hovering over what looked like Littleton or Highlands Ranch area. I thought it was the moon at first, but after returning to see it again, nothing was there. and few clouds were in that area at all. I drove out towards cherry creak reservoir and had a clear view of a star lit sky, yet no moon or strange orange/yellow object.

from my perspective, it was about the size of a shot glass at my windshield (although clearly far away from me)
