I live on the 16th floor of a high-rise in downtown denver. the sunset was beautiful this particular night and i noticed what i thought must be venus above the mountains while looking s-sw. i thought the distortion from the atmosphere was extraordinary since the color was so orange. i actually thought to myself, "now i see how people can mistake venus for a ufo." i got my binoculars and realized the light was in front of some lingering clouds. at this point i thought, "must be an airplane coming toward me" because the light was so bright. i went to grab my phone to see what stars/planets would be in that part of the sky. i was away from the window less than a minute. when i got back, the light had dropped significantly closer to the mountains and appeared to have a short, fat tail on it - like it was moving away from my position at an angle. i watched it for the next minute or so and it dropped behind the mountains. it did not reappear. i have a good view of the mount lindo cross from the apartment and that was visible that evening. i have no idea of the exact distance, but the object was north of the cross.
