Orange object moving from north to south in the western sky in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Last Thursday, March 4th, at approx. 9:00 pm we witnessed an orange object with a 'spray' of sparks coming out from behind it. The object slowly crossed the western sky, moving from north to south, paralell with the horizon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. One of the strangest things is that shortly after that, the planet Jupiter??? (there are two planets in line with one another and this is the one nearest to the horizon and is very bright)'disappeared' for a minute or two then reappeared. The owner of the 4 Winds hotel (in Puerto Vallarta) has reported the same thing occuring night after night. I have taken pictures of the object and will send them to you as soon as I have them developed.
