white light ascends vertically

Saw a bright white light approaching from my northwest. I initially assumed it to be an approaching plane from the Huntsville area. As the light reached almost due west, it flashed and instatly began a near vertical ascent. The light visible during ascent (from what I now believed to be the bottom of this object) appeared reddish in color. The reddish light got increasing smaller as it ascended and finally disappeared
