Red ball of light low to the east, which hung in the air motionless, for 3 to 4 minutes.

Red ball of light hung in the air low against the horizon and to the east. After 3 to 4 minutes passed, as the object remained motionless, the light "collapsed" into itself until it became a pinpoint proportion. The pinpoint of light appeared for around 10 seconds, then disapeered, never once moving.
