Shape: Circle, Star-like | Duration: 00:15:00

I was exiting my house at approximately 9:00-9:15pm. I looked into the western to northwestern sky and noticed a VERY bright, Orange and Reddish in color object. It just seem to be suspended there in the sky. At first I just passed it off as a planet and went back inside. About 1 minute later I came back out to get into my vehicle and noticed it was still there.I began driving to my girlfriends house, just so happened to be in the same direction as the object. While I was in route to my girlfriends residence I began to observe the object more closely. I then became aware that there was no way it was a planet or a star. It was to big. For example if u held a dime or penny out arms length and looked at it in the sky thats about how big it was. It was also way to bright. I also do dabble in astronomy and know my stars, planets and constellations well. Ive also been in law enforcement for 7 years or more. I have been trained to observe things and situations.As I kept observing the object for the next 5 minutes or so. It then shrank and then totally vanished. Approximately 3 to 5 seconds later it reappeared a lot farther away in the same direction. I seen it do this 2 more times in about 5 more minutes before I lost sight of it. It had to have been traveling at incredible speed to blink out and then reappear that far away. I was amazed by this!!!Ive have seen a similar object about 3 to 4 years before. When I was working for a sheriffs department we were receiving phone calls about strange objects in the sky. Me and another officer went to check it out. When we were in route to a certain town I observed 4 VERY bright, orange reddish objects suspended over the town. They were in a perfect line, perfectly spaced. While we were driving we lost sight of the town and the objects. When the town came back into view the objects were gone.
