i was out in my backyard sky watching when i saw a very bright red orange star directly west it was around 10:00 pm at that time. i noticed it because it was so bright and i had never seen a star that was that color. however i just assumed it was Venus or one of those very bright planets. i looked away and started to scan the rest of the sky, a few minutes later i looked back at the spot where the bright star was and it was gone, it did not change position as i looked everywhere near where it was but it was no where to be found. when i first saw it i looked at it through my binoculars but their not all that strong and it still looked like a star or a very small glowing orb, i didn't think that was strange since i figured it was a planet, it was only after i noticed it gone that i started to wonder if i had seen a ufo. there were no clouds and i stayed outside for at least 15 to 20 minutes longer waiting for it to reappear, it never did. possible explanations: landing lights. planes often look like their standing still if they are flying the the same direction as they are being viewed, however landing lights blink and flicker, this light was steady and through my binoculars it didn't look like a plane or any kind of air craft. my binoculars may not be strong but i can make out the shapes of planes at very high altitudes. the only other explanation i can think of is that it may have been a meteor hitting the atmosphere and then burning out as it passed through. but i dont know what this looks like so i am not sure if it fits, as i said it was glowing a red orange star like thing which through binoculars looked round like a small orb. not sure if that could be a meteor. does anyone have any idea what this could be? and has anyone seen this in the area? if so let me know
