Slow flying bright object accelrating fast into space

My wife and I were sitting on our balcony in ALBIR, SPAIN on Sunday May 20, 2012 just after 9 pm. The skies were clear and there was no wind. I watched a bright object coming from the mountains on what I would guess 2-3 miles altitude. Sometimes it was moving from left to right, slowly and most of the time it was almost still/not moving.

After a couple of minutes it started to move east (towards us) and after a minute or two it took off almost straight up and it looked like it accelerated to enormous speed instantly and it went smaller and smaller and disappeared in about 3 seconds.

We can not tell the size of this as we do not know the altitude. The colour as we saw it was almost glowing (red /orange) and the light was consistent.

It took off at a small angle so we had some kind of speed impression as opposed to just leaving us in a straight line.

I have never believed in this before and I do not know if I do now but this is the most inexplicable thing I have ever seen.
