Location: Chandler, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration: 5-10 minutes
High altitude red star like light stationary of 5-10 minutes vanished without moving away.

At approximately 8:00pm I took the trash to the dumpster in the alley. It was a beautiful night and as always I looked into the sky to view the stars.Directly to the east and very high was what appeared to be a red star. It was stationary, it was radiant like a star it did not flash like airplane lights but it was the most beautiful red gem like light, it didn't have the dead or mechanical look of airplane lights. I watched it for a while thinking it has to move and then I'll know it is a plane, but it just stayed still. I ran in to get binoculars and when I came back out it was still in the same location. I could not get a steady fix on it with the binoculars. Then it moved to the south in almost a floating, slow type movement. It stopped and stayed put again, then it vanished. It did not move off into the distance, it simply vanished right where it was. I am 56 years old have never seen anything I couldn't explain until this. It was a beautiful light laser like, somehow it had "life" to it. I also think the altitude was quite high.
