Bright object seen manuvering in night sky; bright white light changed to orange glow, then disappeared

One object very well lit viewed in the northern night sky. Object headed east/southeast. There were no blinking lights. The light emitted was a bright white light. The object appeared to manuever up and down unlike any human-made craft that I'm aware of. The velocity/speed was greater than that of a commercial aircraft based on my observations of commercial aircraft flight speeds from the ground. The object continued its path heading east by southeast for a about 2 and 1/2 minutes. Then it appeared to turn north by northeast. At this point the bright white light disappeared. What was amazing was that the white light was "replaced" by an orange fire-like color which lasted for a few seconds. After that, the object disappeared as if it accelerated at an enormous speed. There were no sounds that one would hear such as jet engines.
