Bright orange light shines spotlight on lake,makes no sound.

My father and I were fishing at Heims Lake(now lake stella maris)when all of the sudden the crickets stopped chirping,everything seemed to stop.There was dead silence over the lake.We were in a small aluminum boat. This light appeared,orange and bright in color.The light shined a spotlight sort of light down on to the lake as if it were looking for something.All the time the object made no sound.After about two to three minutes,the object shot up into the sky and disappeared.At that time the crickets and owls started back with their sounds.We then saw and heard two jet aircraft fly overhead as if they were in pursuit.
