Brightest star traveling in the sky before turning red and blinks out.

I noticed a bright star in the sky just as i was waiting for my wife to open the front door. The star was moving in a line, it did not flash like a plane and it travelled maybe twice the speed of your avg jumbo jet. While keeping my eye on the star to see where it was traveling, it then changed color from a white yellow color into this red before it went out.

I went into my home to put down my belongings and came back out hoping to see more of this light. Around 5 mins later I saw a dimmer red light like a feint star traveling the opposite way but this time it seemed higher over the clouds and was even faster then the fast time. I keep my eyes on it as long as possible until I lost it in the other stars, because it was traveling parallel in the Milky Way.

I'm not sure if its the same object I saw but it was on the same night and around 5 mins apart. I do look at the sky a lot, I know the difference between a commercial plane or a shooting star and this was very different.
