Orange light moving accross sky that turned bright white and vanished in Shawnee, OK 5/15/2009

Around 10 pm on May 15th my husband (27 y/o Landscaper from Shawnee) and I (20 y/o Real Estate Agent also from Shawnee) were driving West on Clearpond Road at the intersection of Coker. It was cloudy and there was lightning because there was a storm moving in.

I noticed an orange glow that at first I thought was just a plane, so I ignored it. But it appeared to be flying very low and towards us so it grabbed my attention again and I stopped. I had only really looked at it for about 10 seconds or so when the light turned bright white and started blinking, slowly at first and then more rapidly. It did that for just a few seconds more and then vanished. My husband was there with me and said it was probably just a plane that flew into the clouds. I believe differently.
