Disapearing sattellite like object spotted above Los Angeles County.

My Lady and I were out in the front yard looking for our chickens that had gotten out of the back yard. It was a very clear night and the stars were shining nicely. I layed on my back in the driveway to look into the sky as I often do on nights like this. There was a couple of planes in the sky, one local and one in the distance. My Lady and I both noticed a light travelling at a very quick pace. This object was moving across the sky from NW due SE and appeared to be very high up. The light was bright and appeared white. She asked me what I thought it was and we both thought it may be a sattelite, which was a bit out there because we were in the city. We have been out at the Salton Sea and seen a sattelite clearly along with a nice view of the Milky Way. This object was clear and moving across the Pasadena sky, which has a lot of light pollution. The object had just passed above us, at the same high altitude, and started to change in color from white to red and then it vanished. It was a very clear night, and this object did not have a blinking beacon like all other craft in the sky!
