Orange orb over treeline in Palm Coast, FL seen by 2 witnesses driving South on highway 1/30/13 at 8:50

Driving South on the I-95 Highway on the West side, there was a strong, orange orb-shaped light that both the driver and myself noticed simultaneously. It was approximately 8:50 pm. Out first impression was to think that it was a tower that the treeline was blocking all but the top of. However, the lights on our towers were usually red and/or white, not this glowing bright orange.

Seconds after we verbally addressed the light, it began ascending Westwards, toward the direction of the ocean that was less than 4 miles away. It was clearly visible, hovering for moments high above the treeline, then it made a motion in which a blurry dark orange to red short "tail" appeared to come off of the right side of the object that made me think of the term "warp speed".

I was able to take pictures with my iPhone. Almost instantly it seemed substantially smaller. After a moment it blink out of sight then reappeared then blinked out of sight and reappea! red again. One more blink and it was gone.
