The night very clear and cold with moon shine and no clouds. As I was closing curtains on the south side of the house, I stood and watched the sky for a while. Than from the left, which is east, an ovel shaped object came into view. It had one solid very bright white light and flashed a very bright white light. Right behind it, was a small sphere. It was a dull to lite red color. Following like a caboose on a train. I compared the first object to other planes in the area, and it was not a plane. I have never ever seen anything like that. And I knew it was not a plane. After 10 minutes,it disappeared behind trees, close to the horizon.
