Bright Red Orange Sphere Gliding at Tree Level

It was 8 pm, I was in my car driving down a usually busy city street that's in between two major intersections. But at this time, it was late on a Sunday evening. My husband was following directly behind me in his car. There were few cars on the street along with us at this time. This short stretch of neighborhood area has few street lights. An object caught my eye on the right side of the street. It was a bright/glowing red orange object that was gliding at tree level. It crossed our path. I got to witness it up close as it crossed right in front of me. The only way I can describe it, is that looking out my windshield from inside, it was about the size of a large car. The object was glowing red from within and had a bright colorful haze around it. It seemed to be in the shape of a tear drop sphere but it was so bright. I would've gotten a good recording if I had had my phone out. I slowed down and rolled my window down so that I could point out! the object to my husband. It made no sound as it glided straight across. I pulled over to the first parking lot I found and I was able to watch it until it disappeared. This definitely is a populated area that I witnessed it in. It was coming from an area that is somewhat isolated but going towards the highly populated area. It was not a fireball with a tail and it was not falling from the sky. It was gliding across the sky at a low level and moderate speed. I only saw one object but I kept looking around to see if I could see anything else. When I got home, my husband confirmed that he too had seen the object.
