Orange globe moving in the sky.

While driving west on Elevator Rd. near the intersection of County Line Rd., I witnessed an orange circle about 45 degrees up in the sky straight in front of me. I started driving up a hill so the object was straight in my line of view. It was rather small but was a perfect circle. The color was a very bright and warm orange. It almost looked like an orange sitting on top of a basketball rim from the other side of the court. It stayed very still for about two seconds after I noticed it. It then proceeded to move down toward the road, with a slight angle to the right, at an incredible rate of speed for onky a second. I imagine it was far away based on the size of it. In order for it move that distance. It came to a dead stop right abobe the crest of the hill for two more seconds. Then it just vanished.
