Bright Red Pinpoint Of Light Traveling Across Sky

I just had twins and I no longer smoke in the house and late last night while smoking and sitting in a zero gravity recliner looking straight up I saw a pinpoint of red light moving slowly across the sky. It was very bizarre looking; A tiny, tiny speck of brilliant red light traveling across the sky. Is it possible this was a satellite? The intensity of the light was incredible but the object was definitely in space, well above our atmosphere, I am assuming because of its size (it was as small as a pinpoint at arms length) and the time it took to cross the sky (I can only view about 40 degrees of the horizon in my backyard due to the trees and roof of my house) .
