Bright, red ball with no noise and changed directions then shot off and disappeared

My husband, my 14-year old son, and I stepped out onto our back patio after my husband noticed something in the sky that he initially thought was a firework. It was a brilliant, bright red light that moved from West to East across the sky.

It was traveling much faster than an airplane and it momentarily changed direction mid-flight upwards and then resumed course West to East.

There was no noise coming from the object.

As it approached closer to us it was quite large and very, very bright red, almost glowing.

As it got closer to us the object stopped mid-flight and shot off away from us.

Itís like it disappeared into nowhere. We were quite shaken up as it was very unusual.
