Duration:20:17
Bright red/orange, pulsating and circular object crossed the sky heading mostly West to East for 7 minutes

Bright red/orange, pulsating circular object appeared in the NW sky about 45degrees off the horizon and looked to be moving E-SE slowly. After about 2 minutes, the object was due North of me,slightly higher on the horizon, and seemed to slow a little as it now headed due East. As the object past me and after about 4 minutes from the time I first saw it, an aircraft ( probably commercial ) came relatively close to the object. Soon after ( 15 or 20 seconds), the object seemed to dim, then brighten, speed up and quickly dissappear on the horizon E-NE of me. The characteristics of the object seemed almost identical to the brighter of the two objects observed and reported almost exactly 48 hours earlier.
