CYLINDRICAL OBJECT REVOLVING WITH ONE END GLOWING

IT WAS JUST PAST HALFTIME AT THE TAMPA BAY BUCS VS ATLANTA FOOTBALL GAME AT RAYMOND JAMED STAFIUM. I SIT IN THE SOUTH END ZONE SO THIS OBJECT WAS N/W OF MY LOCATION AND QUITE HIGH UP. WE WERE NOTICING CONTRAIL ACTIVITY FROM PLANES WHEN I SAW A FLASH LIKE A PLANE STROBE. I GOT MY BINOCULARS TO GET A BETTER LOOK AND IT APPEARED TO BE A CYLINDER WITH A RED GLOWING LIGHT ON ONE SIDE. IT WAS SPINNING LENGHTHWISE. IT WOULD FLASH EACK TIME IT REVOLVED. I POINTED IT OUT TO MY MOTHER, WIFE, NEPHEW AND THE TWO GUYS SITTING BEHIND ME. IT STAYED IN ONE POSITION IN THE SKY FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES. IT SUDDENLY JOGGED QUICKLY EAST AND SAT THERE. IT APPEARED TO BE MOVING UP AND AND BECAME FAINTER. AS I WENT TO LOOK A FINAL TIME,AS I GOT IT IN MY SIGHTS, MY NEPHEW EXCLAIMED "DID YOU SEE THAT?". IT TOOK OFF EAST IN A FLASH AND WAS GONE.
