soft pale peach light ascended slowly controlled from 68 degrees near ursa major and SHOT OFF vanished out of sight like shooting star!

Something compelling like a "gravity" pull kinda how the feeling in my legs is I get when a storm comes in... Something told me to go outside for about an hour now... so when I laid the baby down to sleep mommy stayed with and I went to take the trash out... I was just simply taking the trash out threw it away turned around and looked up a beautiful clear night sky tonight. I was refreshed being outside as I stared into the still sky when suddenly what first seemed like a star began to travel vertical slooooow in the sky around 68 degrees up horizon toward ursa major (I know a lil bout constellations) ...! it was a soft peach light. it ascended for what seemed about 4 seconds and 18 degrees in my line of sight. surged possible a lil brighter just before it swwwwosh ! took off in a second! like a shooting star right to left!!!!!!! it had to be 25 degrees lateral in my sky view... the distance it "tailed"/ streaked was akin to a shooting star and I would had dismissed it like a meteor show except for that I witnessed before that portion of the experience... the vertical slow "controlled" ascension then to veer like it did is unexplainable to me growing up an GE hornet aircraft engineer's son. I still have goose bumps ! Im wired I cant sleep now... I had to report!
