Stationary Red Glow Caught On Mini DV Cam.

I was standing in my backyard sky gazing as usual when I noticed a very bright, bigger than a planet or star round red glow in the sky to the northwest of my location. I ran inside and grabbed my Mini DV Cam, it has a 440x digital zoom, and started pushing in on the object. It became clear very quickly as the camera focused on the object(s) that it was made up of a very large piece in the center that sort of resemble the shape of the state of Texas with other red glowing particles around it. at one point a piece maybe 2 percent of the size of the big piece shot off toward camera left. I went inside to grab a tri pod and when I came back it was slowly drifting west by north out of sight.
