Reddish orange object with white center seen by 4 slowly moving from east to west over Joshua Tree, Ca.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

my friends and i were sitting in his back yard on a couch faceing north when I noticed a bright fireball enter the view on the left. to me at first, it looked like redish/orange easter celophane for baskets. I brought it to their attention and about that time as it was moving from left to right, or west to east, i began to see that there was a bright white center. i quickly got out my camera phone and started to take pics. after a few shots, i turned and changed the resolution on my phone. when i did, they said that it dipped and made a turn that was simmilar to a question mark. i turned around in time to take some more pics as it fadded out of sight. there was no sound associated with this craft nor was there any strobe like from conventional aircraft. it couldnt have been more than 200-300 feet high.
