Red and orange light appeared to "cruise" steadily, then rapidly ascend at an angle and disappear.

I was sitting on my front porch swing. Two neighbors were walking by on the sidewalk. I saw a red and orange, somewhat blurry, but brighter in the center, oval shape drop a little from the northeast, and then appear to “cruise” at the same altitude.

I heard a low humming noise. I asked the neighbors, “Do you see that? What is that?” They stopped and looked up and saw it, too. It seemed at first to be “cruising” at a constant speed, and then abruptly changed direction, and within seconds disappeared at an angle toward the stars. I think the most unique thing about it was the rapid escalation up into the night sky that just took seconds. (My father worked for USGS). ((sic. USCG))
