Single bright red orb close to top of car then suspended in the sky

I’m reporting on some sort of UFO (unidentifiable to myself) I saw last year. I am only just now reporting because I was unaware I could report this. I was referred by someone on Reddit from the r/UFOs page.

I can’t remember the EXACT date and EXACT time: roughly June 29-June 30 of 2018; time may have been anywhere in between 10P-12A I believe.

Me and my girlfriend were in New Mexico driving from Colorado to Oklahoma, taking HWY 64 going E/SE. I was exhausted already, and so was my girlfriend. During the trip, we would smoke a little bit of herb to keep our mind occupied. But I am confident that was I saw was not due to me being tired or possibly high. I’ve never had such an experience before. I believe 100% what I saw.

I was sitting passenger seat, hadn’t seen a car or been near a town for miles and miles. What I seen was a single, bright red light from the top right corner of the windshield, seeming only about 10-15 feet from what would be the top of our car (a sedan). It struck me as odd, so I watched it through the side passenger mirror.

It looked as if it very slowly rose into the sky but stayed in the same position at the same time. There was no way it was the reflection of the taillights of the car on a road sign. It was a bright and sharp orb of red light. It seemed to suspend in the air, maybe about 20 seconds. I was able to look through the back windshield to make sure and it was there, almost directly behind us but in the sky. It slowly faded out until there was nothing but the darkness behind us. It looked if it may have been traveling N/NW.

I’m not sure what it was, and hope to find out if there is a scientific explanation for this. My girlfriend says she didn’t see it, but her eyes were on the road because she can’t see the best at night. This is not a made up story or a hoax. This actually happened to me. I tell my friends and family this story, and it’s even more believable that it could be a phenomenon based on location.
