Slow moving, red pulsing light in the sky

Moon was approximately 30 degrees above the horizon this morning and to the north of the moon was a brilliant red, pulsing light. It seemed like it was pretty distant and it didn't look like a normal flickering light from an airplane. I couldn't see any discernable form, only a light with a fairly consistent pulse to it. At first I thought it was stationary but realized it was moving, but not what I perceived to be in any one direction, like a plane does. I was driving in a car so it may have been moving in one direction. It was hard to tell. It also wasn't traveling quickly across the sky like a plane would. It was slow moving. I lost sight of it after a few minutes. It just disappeared. I searched and searched the skies but did not find it again. It was weird.
