Strange orange light hovering in the sky over western NC-dogs going crazy-have a video of it.

Last night while outside we noticed an orange/red light with smaller lights around it. It was hovering at times but would move up and down slowly. My uncle tried to see this thing through his telescope and couldn't bring it in. At times it would look as though it was going to disappear but didn't. After seeing it for several minutes we thought it was going away, so we went inside.

30-45 minutes later we were leaving to go home and we noticed the light again, but it had moved more to the east. One person tried to use her phone to video it but her phone went immediately went dead. When she took the phone to charge it, it only took 10 minutes to fully charge and the light was gone.
