As i loaded my bags into my car, i noticed a very large bright star-like object near the moon. i assumed it was a planet but thought i had never seen a planet so bright. i drove the 3 miles to my house and as i exited the car, the white light had become a bright glowing red orb that hovered in the sky and appeared to be moving in a slow circle. my boyfriend came out to help with the shopping bags and i pointed at the orb. he initially thought it was a helicopter in flames but then realized it wasn't falling, but just sitting in the sky. and then it started to very slowly descend. we lost sight of it behind a tree line.
