Initial object was very bright in the clear eastern sky with no other stars or commercial objects visible - bright white oval, football shape initially with two internal circular lights such as jellyfish. Another object after viewing through binoculars, dark red in color, moved in and close - with no other objects in the sky. We deployed our telescope, not capturing the red entity as it moved close and disappeared from the football - as we deployed our highest resolution telescope - we observed one object of pulsating and flashing lights, stagnant in the sky - but then moving extremely down range with dark red orange.red. With our high powered telescope we kept it in range for an hour or more. A plane passed, with thin wings across my line of site with the object, not a commercial vehicle.
