Bright green light faded then turned to orange before disappearing

Was out for my nightly walk when I happened to glance N-NE and see this bright green neon-ish light in the sky, flying rapidly. It had a bright orange tail tagging along.

After watching it for about 15-20 seconds, it faded out so only the tail was showing, then reappeared as an even brighter orange/yellow that lit up the sky like a sunset. Absolutely beautiful, and almost blinding.

Then it dimmed back down and flew behind some trees, where I lost sight of it.

That whole dim -> orange like the sunset -> dim -> gone occurred in maybe 5 seconds.


Location of witness not specified. PD
