Oval , Yellow- Orange craft seen fly rapidly from NNW to zenith then to the east and vanish

I just had returned home from a mars party where ppl would view mars at its closest with telescopes, and decided to again go outside and observe mars, and after a close observation ... the Aurora Borealis(which were coinsedentally orange-purple colored...)i went into the house to get my telescoe and its case.I returned outside and set it down on the patio, and looked up north east while catching a breath of air. At this point i noticed a very bright yellowish-orange oval traveling from the northwest vicinity of the sky leaving , and it zipped to the zenith and pulsated between a orange color and a yellow color . it then streaked very quickly over to what looked like the M.A.F.B (Minot Air Force Base) airspace . and disappeared. I was about ready to stop drinking so much cappacino from then on :|
