Star like object and reddish sphere sighting

I went to a nearby park around 1:30am and laid down in the grass, looking up at the sky. I was with a friend. The sky had bouts of moving clouds. Sometimes the clouds were more dense, and sometimes the sky would be pretty opened up. I soon noticed a very bright star, there weren't any others noticable in the sky. It was abnormally bright, and it was moving north in the sky. It felt much too distant to be a plane, and there was no sound. I asked my friend what he thought of it. He said he wasn't sure, he thought it was probably a satellite and fell asleep. I've never seen a satellite before, but this 'star' looking object then stopped and stayed in one place, making small seeming motions back and for or up and down. This object would fade in and out sometimes, other times it would get covered by clouds and it made it difficult for me to understand what it really was. After observing this one object, and noticing others over a matter of a half hour to 45 minut! es, one single, low flying plane, flew through the sky right in the vicinity that I was watching the object. I felt as though someone else saw this and was investigating the situation. This was the only airplane I saw in the sky from my location that night. Not long after that, I saw the most facinating thing I have ever seen. A reddish, hazy, round sphere, less than a quarter of the moon in size came from nowhere from the lower left side of the star moving to the right, and flew at a very fast speed in front of the clouds across below the star looking object, and immediately moved south, in front of the clouds, but still feeling pretty far away. The experience lasted about ten seconds and then it disappeared. My friend soon woke up, and we left. I can't really remember much after the red sphere, I know the sky cleared of clouds, and some stars were visible. It became more difficult to tell what were stars and if the star like object was sitting among them. I was pretty ove! rwhelmed.
