MASSIVE SIZE Red circular light in sky resembling a planet in the west sky of texas

It was a red ball that was about 10 times the size of the moon just sitting in the sky with a haze type aura around it, we were driving down highway 82 and watched it just sit there for a couple minutes, then out of nowhere it turned of, like a light-bulb, gone in the blink of an eye. It honestly looked like a red planet. HUGE RED PLANET.

Two city patrol cars we passed pulled to the side of the road during this event. Many people witnessed this, including anyone driving w bound on US 82 Gainesville, Texas.

I told my husband after i caught my breath, please tell me that is the moon. We were speechless. How could this major rust red circular shape be here then gone. It was almost as though it was a fast sunset but this is at nearly 1 am so.............

Please contact us back on this. My kids are freaking out.
