Bright light appearing out of nowhere and speeding off

My wife and I were sitting in our driveway looking at the Waxing Crescent in the Western sky. To the low-right of the Moon, in the North/North-Western sky, a light suddenly came into sight and proceeded to get brighter and brighter. The light was yellow,orange and white in color.

At first, it looked like the lights of an oncoming aircraft heading directly towards us (Eastward), but the light, at its brightest point, suddenly moved in a Northern direction at a very high rate of speed and eventually faded out of sight. It's as if it just appeared out of thin air and shot off. Quite amazing! The whole thing took place in about 20 seconds.
