My wife and I went outside to look at our Xmass lights when she noticed a bright red light in the SW direction. I went and got my binoculars and observed the red light glowing bright and the dim. The round light seemed to change to have something sticking out from the right side, hard to say since the object was some miles away.
After about five minutes this object still staionary just turned light white and dimming out. This object seemed to be lower than the farthest mountain range to my west. Also there were military fighter jets flying around this night, which is not unusual for our skys.
They are always flying around.
