Orange glowing object seen over Riverside County, releasing small glowing red objects

I saw a small "craft" with an orange glow, moving slowly (maybe 100 to 200 MPH) through the sky last night. It was heading from west to the north-east, moving fairly slow and about at a height of maybe 40,000 FT.

I noticed it right away, in that it didn't have the same glow of a commercial or private plane. Not to mention, the entire object was luminescent/glowing (it wasn't the headlight of an airplane, but just as bright). Anyhow, as it began to head north, I started noticing small red glowing objects were being released from the craft. These small objects would propel themselves and an incredible high rate, straight down, or in a 90 degree angle and then just disappear. These red glowing objects were being released, every 5 seconds or so. After 3 of these glowing-red objects were released, the craft then released 3 more objects, all at once, then begin to accelerate and incredible rate of speed. As it was accelerating, it begin to lose it's orange glow and literally began to disappear! Before it disappeared, it seem to accelerate to over a 2 thousand miles an hour (from 200 MPH to 2000 MPH with in 2 or 3 seconds). I watched this object for approximately 5 minutes (from start to finish).
