Strange Fireball with no Sound and Pausing in the night sky.

My brother and I just step of out of our cars and happen to look up and saw a RED and ORANGE ball of flame passing by from the North side and heading down to South side of Altoona, Pa. Looks like it came traveling by Tyrone ,Pinecroft and end in Altoona, PA and then shooting up to Space.

Strange things is that made it as ufo sighting is: it was moving slowly in straight path then it stop for a 15 seconds then to start to move again in same straight path. then stop again for 5 second before shooting up with no sound or explosion. Never in my seem something like that. I know its not a firework or craft in fire.
