I was wondering if anyone in Ventura count saw this craft. At first, I thought it was fireworks display and then a missile 500 Lights

While facing North (slightly to the West) towards Ventura, I witnessed the following: In the distant sky, anywhere from 10 miles or further) a bright while light with various coloration changes appeared. At first it appeared to be slowly rising on the horizion and then a long red and bluish flame shot out for about 20 seconds from behind and the white light turned slight and shot off toward a southerly direction.

Everything about the event appeared to be conventional except two things. First the way the object initially appeared in the sky did not appear to be conventional and secondly I cannot understand why the missile or craft would glow with a bright white. After the flames were gone you could still see what looked to now be a bright white light disappearing into the night. We see many planes and helicopters in our area at night and although the lights on the planes and copper are visible, the fuselage/body of the planes are very hard to see. There were no notable navigational lights on the object either.

I was wondering if anyone in Ventura count saw this craft. At first, I thought it was going to be some type of fireworks display and then when the flames kicked on it looked like a missile and for the record acted just like a missile. But I am not aware of missiles that have glowing fuselages.

I am unsure of the exact time, but it was between 8pm and 10pm.
