Fireball/orange like object spotted! Lodi,CA

Southern Part of Lodi, CA, A fireball like object was seen by my brother and I. From where we were the orange object seemed a distance away, maybe over the Northern Stockton or central Stockton area. Was watching the night sky since it was very clear, then an orange fireball/light came from the lower horizon area and shot up into the sky. Looked alot like a shooting star but orange and flew at a completely different direction than your usual shooting star. The sighting did not last long, maybe 2-4 seconds or less. Object had a weird orange hue and looked like a fireball sort of. Not much activity here in Lodi, CA so this definitely stood out to us. My neck got sore from looking up so much. Makes you hungry for more!! Amazing! :)
