Boomerang shaped, orange craft. Made no sound, but travelled at excessive speed

I went outside to take out rubbish at just before midnight. This is in Doncaster, UK. I'm usually sceptical about things like this. I noticed a flash of light and thought it was travelling fast for a plane that was making no sound, so I walked to the end of the yard and saw a boomerang type shape, glowing orange, gliding silently through the sky. It was moving fast and as I watched it, it seemed to suddenly disappear after so many seconds, although I could see it for several seconds before it disappeared. It was not (in my experience) anything like a plane. And the weird thing was that it was travelling in a way that did not seem aerodynamic. Rather than travelling in the > shape, it was travelling in a < position. Shortly afterwards, there was a lot of activity outside. Dogs barking and I swear there were more sirens than usual in a long burst. It's 12:24am and maybe in the morning, this will all be explained, but it was a weird experience.
