wobbly flying red object

i saw a red object flying wobbly and over newbury street in back bay of boston , ma east towards west then it stopped mid air and started going wobbly towards northeast. It disappeared into the clouds. (it is a cloudy night) it was red/pinkish.I saw it tonight on may 20th 2004 at about 9:40 pm.It lasted maybe 20 seconds.

Questioning myself whether it is a balloon or not , I think it was going way too fast for that -sort of the speed of a helicopter -but it was not a helicopter (no blinking lights and it was matte round object - more like a red balloon) . also it was round and seemed more oval in the clouds.

if there were any such sightings around the same time , can you please let me know? Thank you.
