rotating metallic chrome object shining-intense ruby light , diamond/flat cone shape, stationary high altitude

one rotating metallic (silver/chrome) inverted diamond/flat cone shape, rotating approx once/2sec with a "strange" ruby light emitting from lower third/bottom of object. The object was stationary and at an altitude of 8000+ meters as cirrus clouds slightly obscured object as clouds moved. The object was about 10 to 15 lunar diameters due east or west (I can't remember). The "odd" ruby colored light I assume was fixed on the object as entire object rotated. I estimate the size of the object would be about a small house to a bus, but diamond/conical in shape. 10 to 15 lunar diameters away from the moon's position.
