This was not a balloon, known aircraft,spotlight,,flair ,star, or planet. What in our world was it?

When I looked to the sky, I saw what looked like a red star. Not like what you see when you look at mars through a telescope, but a rich, bright, red star.

It looked to be standing still, but when compared with the white stars around it, it was moving at a slow and steady pace. At about 21:14 when a plane flew over us (while well beneath the "red star") it seemed to pass the object in question, but then the "red star" looked as if it flew away or simply fell with gravity toward the earth and faded out. It was hanging out in the southwest sky.

This is where se saw it from the location of Dobson Ranch.

Myself, my husband, and our neighbor all saw the same episode.

Did anyone else witness this same thing?
