Sighting Details

I was sitting at home in my parked car facing north, writing in my journal and listening to music before bed between 11:45 – 11:50 pm on march 14th, 2017. i saw an orange, oval shaped glowing object through the trees to my northeast (maybe 1,000 foot altitude and climbing). i figured this was probably a plane taking off from the west palm beach airport, but thought it was odd that the craft was orange. it flew past my house heading south, just underneath the roofline, temporarily out of sight. i got out of my car to see it reappear over the rooftop. just as i saw it pass over the roofline of my house (as i’m now facing east), it took a sharp turn east and kept ascending (heading away from me). i couldn’t make out a definite shape of the object, but it was ascending east. i assumed i was now looking at the back of the craft, which looked like a big jet engine glowing orange (i could barely make out the engine outline for a split second). the entire object was glowing orange the whole time, flickering slightly as it moved east away from me. i guess the object may have been wider in back and tapered slightly in front. i can’t say for sure if it had wings. the object disappeared through clouds and was still glowing orange as i lost sight of it. it looked a little more flat and wide as it disappeared through the clouds. this was a mostly clear night. the moon was just to the right of where it disappeared. i’m guessing the craft was somewhere between 100-200 feet long or wide. it was roughly 3/4 of a mile away from me and maybe 3,000 ft. altitude when i first saw it outside my car. the speed of it was pretty steady, nothing too extraordinary, and probably accelerated to a few hundred mph. it had none of the usual white, blue or red flashing lights i see on the wings of normal aircraft. it was solid orange the whole time. and it started south-southeast and banked sharply going due east (out into the atlantic), so it was headed toward the bahamas or somewhere trans-atlantic.
