it was mostly clear just a few light clouds.there are a lot of lights around my house so only the brightest stars are visible to the naked eye.the moon had set a little after 9pm,i was out then looking at venus,jupiter,saturn and the moon. they were in the shape of a capital "L".so i was watching the planes in their usual patterns when i heard one flying west getting close.i looked up almost dirrectly overhead and i saw tthe plane but right in front of the plane was ared dash.i could not tell if the "dash"was higher or lower than the plane.the ufo was a red line about the same size as the plane.its brightness was about the same as the plane.the line was north-south which it maintained as it headed west and did an "S".it was going about 10? timesfaster than the plane and faded out of view vrey quicly.the plane did not change direction or speed and i could follow it for a couple minutes.there where three other planes above the western horizon,two going north and one going south,they didnt change their direction either.i wachted till 11:15pm and all the other planes where in their normal flight paths.althogh one plane flying sw to ne was lower than normal and kept its landing lights on horizon to horizon.the next two planes heading west left contrails.
