Large red/yellow fireball followed by craft similar to the space shuttle

Leaving Lake Wales Florida approximately 8:05 pm on Highway 60 when there was a large red/yellow fireball in the sky that appeared that a rocket was launched. There was a craft that looked similar to the space shuttle that continued through the atmosphere and then left. This was very similar to the space shuttle launch but we do not have that kind of capabilities to launch a rocket in Lake Wales Florida.
