Unidentifiable light(lights) moving uncharacteristically.......

Around eight i saw what appeared to be an airplane-however i know the flight patterns of the closest airport (pontiac airport) and this was not moving in the according was moving towards me(to the east) and was not flashing, blinking or changing altitude. It stayed almost perfectly level and was glowing a bright orange. The intensity of the glow vareied to almost white at times, then to a yellow again. Thought it may have been a helicopter, but no sound.....Suddenly just blinked off/ dissappeared. Minutes later, in the exact same place, saw what appeared to be a comet/meteor shoot from the same spot in the sky down to the right(behind the tree-line). Kept watching and 2-3 min. later saw an extremely bright light rise up from where the "meteor" went to the ground. It rose straight up and then suddenly chaged direction to the left-immediately. It traveled perfectly straight to the left(south) and kept going until out of sight,picking up speed until out of sight. No clouds that night. About 25 degrees and no wind(maybe 3-5 mph). Very quiet outside....Within 5-10 min., two helicopters where combing the area(very discernable) for about 30-45 min. Lots of stars(very clear) and great visability. Still freaks me out as to what it was.....
