Metal, hot air balloon shape with red light at bottom.

Me & my wife were heading home, when I noticed what I though was a balloon in the sky. Then I realized it was shiny like metal, really far in the sky (balloon would be hard to see at that distance), & it seemed to have a light at the bottom.

Imagine a large hot air balloon shape, that is solid, with a large light shining red. Then, we passed what I would guess to be directly under it, went forward driving, looking back to see it again. We never saw it again nit was there 1 minute & gone the next. So, either a very large, solid metal hot air balloon with a light at the bottom or something unexplained.
