Spotted object overhead, then watched it shoot across the sky, coming from the northwest and traveling easterly.

Sitting in my truck waiting to go deer hunting I was watching a meteor shower and all of the sudden an intense flash of light caught my at- tention. The object traveled a short distance giving off an orange trail . It shot across the top of my truck never making a sound. I jumped out trying to follow it with my eyes. It made about a 45 degree turn, emitted another intense flash of light and disappeared. I couldn't make out any particular color or shape because it was traveling too fast. Then I began watching the trail. You could see it move with the wind until it also disappeared.
