bright sphere seen over Goleta holding still for several mins. then moving slowly towards outterspace.

I looked out of my kitchen window and up into the sky where a large plane happened to be flying very high up and I was thinking about "chemtrails" and thats when I saw a glimmer behind the plane. I havent seen "chemtrails" around for two months here but that afternoon there were a few over the mountains and thats why I had them on my mind. The glimmer was coming from what looked like a very bright orange, yellowish, golden sphere, that was very reflective and appeared to be changing colors. This thing was still for about 3 minutes and then slowly started drifting up and to the NE direction until it just disappeared into the sky. This isnt the first time I've seen UFO's over the Santa Barbara mountains.
