Bright light traveling quickly changes to reddish-orange globe then disappears

Bright light, twice as bright as Venus, on a fairly clear night. Many stars and other craft (planes) easily seen during the night.

Object was brilliant whitish light, traveling east at a steady rate of speed. No sound from the object. My wife and I observed the light over our home for about 45-60 seconds, at which time the object changed size and color - 1/2 as small and reddish-orange in color. Approximately 5 seconds after changing size and color, the object completely disappeared.
