Red light that seemed to drop falling embers over White City, Oregon

I saw a bright red light in the Eastern sky, about 1 mile from my home. I thought, at first, that it was a plane coming in, but the light remained in the same position while I watched it and did not blink. I don't know how long it was there before I noticed it.

The unusual thing was that smaller red lights seemed to fall from it - rather like burning cinders - that seemed to burn out about half way to the ground. I saw several of these fall. Then the red light just went out - instantly. I have no idea what it was, but have never seen anything like it before.

Just thought I'd let you know.
