|a bright red light seen to grow in size and intensity, then vanish.
I'm a pizza delivery driver.
Earlier in the day (about 6-ish) I saw a bright red light, that looked about the size of mars (seen from earth), but it was sleightly brighter, and thought it was mars.
Later, about 6:30, I was driving southish, and I saw the same thing, only this time, it was brighter.
After two or so seconds, the light grew brighter, and expanded in size to about 1/2 inch at arms length. Then it quickly dimmed, and dissapeared.
I could see no plane lights in that area after the sighting. I'm no astronomer, but I always watch the stars.
