Duration:5 seconds
Bright orange light rising rapidly over southeastern sky at 5:00 am

Bright orange light in southeastern sky rose vertically from about 5 degrees elevation to about 15 degrees over a period of about 5 seconds. Brighter than Venus and slightly brighter than aircraft headlight. Color was orange not white so it is not likely to be an aircraft takeoff.

At the 15 degree position the light brightness diminished to a very faint point for about a second and then the point light disappeared.

No blinking or running lights were seen after the point light disappeared.
