Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Moving fireball in the night sky, changed course and color multiple time at rapid speed in San Diego

While sitting down outside of my home facing the Western horizon, I witnessed a bright orange fireball in the sky moving from West to East. Suddenly it abruptly changed directions, then moving South-West.

The color changed as well, from a bright orange fireball to a reddish hue, then from reddish hue to amber color.

Directions changed once again, from South-West to North, gaining both altitude and speed. While heading North at a rapid unnatural pace, it was no longer a simple fireball, but some sort of solid object or craft.

This all occurred in complete silence within a 3 minute time span between 8:55-9:05 Pacific Time.
