Bright orange light turning to white and disappearing quickly

My husband and I were driving on the Florida turnpike heading to Orlando for vacation and saw a bright orange ball of light that seemed to be hovering. We just passed the Ocala exit. My husband thought it was a tower lgbt, but it looked to high to be that.

All of a sudden, it seemed to elongate and then turned bright white and disappeared, as if it was headed up into space at the speed of light. Then, it seemed to reappear in the distance as a dot similar to what a star looks like.

It was the strangest thing we’ve ever seen.
