Red glowing circular object moving laterally South to North with no sound (about the size of an aircraft)

On October 22, 2011 at approximately 8:45 p.m., my husband and I were outside of our home and observed a bright red "glowing" red oval/circular object in the sky moving laterally South to North. It was as large as an aircraft but made no sound whatsoever. At first I thought it was a glowing balloon or lantern (but more circular in shape), but it did not ascend and moved laterally instead. My husband usually has an answer for everything, but not for this!! I have noticed upon doing an on-line search that others witnessed a similar object in our area (10/18 in Munster, IN, as noted on the MUFON site; and 10/8 in Crown Point, IN on UFO's Northwest site). We've never believed in paranormal activity, including UFO's, but this was so unusual; would love more information!
