stationary red light viewed over Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

At approximately 8:30 PM CST on 2/19/08, my daughter telephoned to say that she, her children and her husband were outside watching a strange object in the sky. She stated that the object was round and had a red light circling the object and a had a red light located underneath the object blinking off and on. She stated that they had watched the object stay in a stationary position in the sky for approximately 30 minutes. We discussed the various possibilities, including a helicopter, airplane, balloon, etc. All these possible explanations were rejected by my daughter and her husband. The object was about the height of an airplane coming in for a landing. The possibility of a balloon was rejected because the object started moving in a northerly direction (against the wind) and then moved back into the original position. She asked if I could see the object and when I looked out my window, there it was! I watched it also and we continued to speculate about it. It then started moving North again and then disappeared. We were wondering if anyone else in Oklahoma City saw this object and reported it.
