Bright red light hovering during 4th of July-not a firework.

My family and I were watching the fireworks from a club. My mother shouted, "what is that? Do you see it??" We all looked. It was this bright red light, looked circular from where we were. It just appeared and then hovered there for maybe a minute, then it slowly started moving and then it was gone. It was so bright I have never seen any light in the sky that bright. And no, it was not a firework. We started hearing they were investigating it and I had told a friend of mine and she says it was a firework. That they have these disc fireworks that go up and then shoot to the side, and they come in all colors. This was solid red, brighter than any firework I had seen. And if it were a firework, why was it hovering? I also want to point out that it was really high up, and I have never seen a firework that high up.
