Radiating, pulsating, fiery object observed in the cincinati night sky!

at approximately 6:30 pm on friday november 7 i witnessed as what can only described as an unidentified flyng object. It appeared to be a a huge radiant object in the distant that remained stationary for at least 20-25 minutes, my wife witnessed the object as well and the object was subsequently recorded on video. i could not positively discern the exact shape of this object but if i were to make a reference point, it resembled the vehicular object depicted in the 1st superman movie that brought superman from krypton to earth, i say that not to sound hoaxy but merely as a description. i reside southern ohio (cincinnati) and the object appeared in the southwestern portion of the horizon. it was a pretty clear nite and this object was clearly no celestial body based on the way it behaved. at times it appeared as giant pulsating ball of light. i noticed a lot of manmade aviation activity in the proximity of this object. this is clearly visible on the tape i made. i called a friend over the phone who resides not too far and he along with other witnesses observed similar activity. after about 25 minutes the object simply diminished in the distance to where it was no longer visible.
