Small orange ball of fire floating upwards in Alameda, Ca.

My wife and I saw a small orange ball of fire floating upwards, from NW, into the sky. Then floated NE, rising higher and higher, into the sky. There was no sound of any propulsion. We took a couple of pictures and it appeared like a small grey cylinder with a black dot in the center. It appeared like a small ball of fire to our eyes. We noticed it dropping a misty substance.
