Red light in the sky over Waterloo, IA

At 20 minutes till midnight just now, my husband, my friend, and I saw a red light in the sky in the northeast really high up, seeming to get higher but come closer to us. It grew brighter, and faded, then grew brighter again before fading out completely as if it went to high for us to see it, but it seemed like it was going in a very large arch almost. Saw it for about a minute. It wasn't blinking, and very red, but had a white light sorta around it. Was NOT a firework, nor a plane or anything like that, and lasted far too long to be a firework. Anyone else see this? What could it be? Also, we were near Covenant Hospital. It was high enough, probably the whole town could have seen it if they were looking. It looked like fire, or a missile, sorta. We tried to take a picture but we only had a camera phone and it didn't show up.
