|redish-orange glowing sphere
Returning from my lunch break, I noticed a red glowing light in the sky about the same level of venus, somewhat to the right of it(almost due north). I commented to my fiance, who was visiting me on my break, about the object. I thought it was Mars, by the redish-orange color of it. However, I didn't remember seeing Mars in the sky near Venus recently. Then the object which had seemed to be setting still in the sky for a minute or so (about two blocks worth of uphill walking)starting moving quickly east. After it had passed about halfway through the sky, we noticed a small line of two or three fading, not blinking, whitish blue lights behind it. Picture a basketball dragging a couple of Christmas lights. These lights made the entire trip across the sky. Maybe not related, but spookyily enough, a helicopter seemed to follow the object just as it was leaving visibility. This helicopter was not the often observed "Healthnet" medivac.
