Unexplained object floating across the night sky

The object appeared in the night sky as a slow moving red light shaped as a ball. All of our neighbors where watching this thing as it slowly drifted over head with no noise or anything.

As the object came across the night as an aircraft would be approaching the light went out.

The next day we called the Des Moines air traffic control and they had no explanation of the incident we had also call the local pd to ask if they had other reports of the incident.

The next nite at a differant time the same light had appeared again as we all watched again and again when aircraft approached it the light went out.

The next night around 10 pm the light appeared again this time the neighborhood got the camcorders out and capturing it on tape and we took it to KTVO in ottumwa and they watched the videos and said they would set up a camera up well that night it was cloudy out and thus being the last time we ever had seen this.
