Lite moved across the sky changing colors from white to orange makes a 90 degree turn towards earth and stops hanging in the sky change

I was camping satuday night and went out of the camper for nature call and noticed a bright lite at a low altitude moving rather fast accross the sky. I called my buddie outside and he observed it also. When i first noticed the lite it was brite white as it moved across the sky it changed to an orange color. Now this original sighting and movement lasted 15-20 seconds and the speed was constant as it changed colors but it suddenly made a 90 degree turn straight down and the color faded from orange to red. The speed was the same during and after the direction change. The lite totally stopped moving 3-4 seconds after the change of direction and just stood still hanging in the sky,it remained that way for another 4 minutes and then it pulsed it lite and faded away. We both acknoweledged to one another what had just been witnessed? It did not app ear again for the next hour or so that i looked. My buddie and myself are both in our early to mid 40*s and we both are carpenters and we dont use drugs. We both agreed that what we saw was not normal and truthfully dont know what we saw.
