Red light SW sky L.A. CA -might be Mars but...

OK, first I am not sure it was a craft. I was up and looking at the night sky, when I saw a red light, bigger than a star, but not much. Color was fairly rich, drawing my attention. I thought it was mars and tried to photograph with digital cam-photos show tiny blurry red shape-cam not best for astro-photography. Thought nothing of it til I heard on CNN about other people seeing same light.Light did not move or blink-acted like planet/star, so thats probably what it was.
