Bright Orange Sphere above desert clouds

I was on a Southwest fligth from Tucson, Arizona, to Los Angeles, California, on June 11th, 2015. It was 11:30 AM and we were about more than 30 minutes from Los Angeles. I decided to open the window and watch the scenery from the right side of plane. It was all desert. I saw patches of uniformed green squares and realized it was the Arizona California border The Colorado Rriver. A few minutes later it was all desert, sand as far as the eye can see.

Then I noticed a plane was moving from East to West diagonally from top right of window to center of window. Plane was moving fast and thought we were doing the same thing. Then I saw another plane right below us going the same direction but way low compared to us.

All of the sudden a bright orange sphere caught my eye, I close my eyes to make sure it was not some type of illusion. Nope it was there and was about 1/8 to 3/16 in diameter. The sphere was right above the clouds that were 80 plus miles from plane on top left of window. I was trying to take a picture with my cell phone camera but it would not come out right the focusing and how little it was would not look right.

I looked at passenger 2 seats from me and tought of asking for help seeing it but he didn't seemed the friendly type. The sphere just sat there above the clouds not moving. All of the sudden it disappeared.

I continue looking but never came back and plane moved on.
