2 witnesses to a large orange fireball object flying upwards into the atmosphere

Late last night when I was driving around with my boyfriend, we witnessed a fireball looking thing fly above us. It seemed to of been flying at a very fast speed, upwards into the atmosphere. It was orange and when compared to the almost full moon last night, it looked like it was about 1/4 the size of the moon. We weren't drinking or anything, we did not have any drugs in our system, never have. We both were freaked out by what we had both witnessed. My sister believes that it was a shooting star from my description, but to me that sounds nothing like what it looked like.. It was too large and orange to be a shooting star. And it was traveling upwards..
