Duration:8-10 sec
looked like a large star, moved for a couple seconds then shot out into space.

I work for a local phone company on the night shift. I went outside to see the Leonid meteors at 4:30 am pst. About 04:35 pst I saw what looked like a large star in the south sky start to move, thought it was maybe a plane but then it rose up and shot off to the south and up (at a very high rate of speed). It was white like a star but as it zoomed away it's color seemed to shift towards yellow or light red.
