Saw orange/amber burning kind of orb flying low and silently North to South and then completely vanish as jet approached from the South

It was a very clear night with almost full moon on a quiet lakeside. I was actually inside when I spotted this strange orb/light moving slowly across the sky and I immediately noticed the lack of any blinking, directional or running lights on this craft. I ran outside to get better look and ruled out satalite as it was actually low in the sky, maybe 1/2 mile up. It was changing, almost morphing orange/amber/yellow orb as best I can describe and the next thing I noticed was it was absolutely quiet, no motor, no sound at all.

Object was traveling North to South at a slow speed in absolute straight line. As I listened for any sound and tried to get a grip with what I was seeing, the de ep orange burning color turned more yellowish, then disapeared altogther in front of my eyes. It did not shoot off up / down or other just disapeared. At that p oint heard a jet sound which made no sense and then spotted a small, private size jet with all the "normal" lights a plane would have headed South to North as it approached the Wilkes Barre Airport to north of our location.

I witnessed this myself, however 5 minutes later my father walked in the door who had been taking home 2 friends and said to us, you will never believe what we just saw, and described the exact thing I had just seen. I've always been a believer but this was the first for sure sighting that was something not of this earth. The technology to make that object move like that and almost change shape/color in front of me...sensing the oncoming jet and going stealth/dark...truely amazing.
