Characteristics: Left a trail, Changed Colo

Bright orange streak following circumference of earth, then abrupt change in direction into space and change from orange to white.

On September 10th, at 12:30am, traveling home to Jacksonville, FL, from a vacation on the west coast of Florida, we noticed a bright light in the air over the St. Johns River. We were traveling east on 295 about to go over the Buckman Bridge in Orange Park about to enter Jacksonville. The light was bright orange traveling north then upward, it looked like a bright orange Nike swoosh, then turned into a white light. At first I would have thought it to be a meteorite, but it was traveling along the circumference of the earth and made an abrupt change straight up, almost a 90 degree turn. Then it changed colors from a bright orange to a white light. My wife, two daughters and a friend all saw this light.
