Orange Orb with glowing light orange trail, very quick, disabled my cell phone, seen in Midlothian, VA

I was just merging onto the Midlothian exit and I saw a large orange ball/orb appear in the sky. It flew very quickly. I could see its trail outside the ball, it was a lighter glowing orange. It flew for a total of 3 seconds across the sky. It looked to have gone about 600 ft if I measured it with the trees, but I felt it was much further away.

I fell silent upon seeing it, tears fled my eyes, my face became incredibly flushed, it felt as if a wave of strange sensation fell upon my face, goose bumps developed, all of this happened within the 3 seconds.

I immediately tried to call my boyfriend, but my phone wouldn't send out calls until I restarted it.
