Bright redish orange star object with no movement for 5 min, suddenly moving up and east out of sight

Outside and saw what looked like an extremely bright redish orange star... like mars but much more bright... it was low on the horizon and it was just sitting still in the same location. After about 5 minutes of no movement at all it raised in the sky and moved east out of sight and vanished.
