Unidentified Red Glowing Object over south Lexington, KY

I was sitting on my balcony around 9:00pm yesterday working on Facebook on my android phone. I noticed a light in the sky through my right eye. So I looked up and at about a 70 degree angle from the horizon was a very bright red glowing abject of moderate size. I sit on the balcony at night all the time because I smoke, but not in the house. I have seen many airplanes and helicopters in the night sky and this was definitely not one of them. I was amazed at what I was seeing so I took some video with my android phone.

The video can be found on my youtube page at

I live in south Lexington, Ky. The object moved due east, then vanished approximately 10 degrees in the sky before reaching the horizon.
