Two flare like lights seen in the sky..then rapidly rising into the air and speeding north creating a haze around them

I went downstairs to get a drink of water at around 10pm when I looked outside my kitchen window and noticed two flare like objects in the air pretty close together. My first impression was that they were helicopters. But what got my attention was that these objects were not moving at all. Puzzled, I went outside to get a better view. These objects were motionless, flashing a red color, then yellow, almost like a flare or welding arc. They then shot straight up into the air at an incredible speed until I could only see one them. At this point, the one that I could see looked like a tiny star. The object then began to move north across the sky at a very high rate of speed, creating a haze around it as it traveled across the sky until it could not be seen anymore.
