Orange shooting star seeing on the South Florida night sky

I was outside of my residence at about 4:36 AM on the morning of 03/24 when I observed an object on the sky that, at first, looked like a shooting star but something tells me that it was not. I originally observed an object that had a trail just like a shooting star but it was orange in color. The object was about 10-20 degrees NW of where I was. I continued to observe the object and after about 15-30 secs the trail went away and the object changed to a white color just like an airplane would look like. The object was traveling in a SE path, and once it reached to about east-southeast of where I was, I could no longer see it behind the clouds and houses.
