Orange fireball viewed near 10 Fwy in CA North of Palm Springs

I saw an orange fireball, I don't think it was a craft. I've seen many shooting stars, and they are always white and much smaller. I was traveling South on HWY 111 about a mile or so South of the 10 Freeway towards Palm Springs. It appeared in the West and was traveling fast to the East. It went behind a mountain that blocked my view and I didn't see anything further. I'm not positive of the time but it was after 7:30 p.m.
