Large red oval object flying over Hall County GA

I was taking my dog for a walk as my husband was unloading groceries when I noticed an odd looking glow through the trees in the back yard. I kept looking to see if it was the moon or what it was that I thought I saw. As I continued looking at the woods I saw it again. It came straight at me overhead when I realized I had no idea what I was seeing.

It was red that looked almost like it might have been on fire but there wasn’t a flame. It was coming from the northeast moving southwest. It was much larger than a bright star but not as big as the moon. It was round to oval in shape maybe the size of a quarter of a full moon.

I’m going to guess it was flying as high as jets but maybe higher and if it was higher than I was about 50% larger than a jet. There were no blinking lights as you would see on an airplane, just solid bright red.

I had a visual on it for a total time of 1-2 minutes. As it was flying southwest after it passed overhead it appeared to almost stall for a several seconds then just started moving again and got went out of sight. It passed over our house at around 160 degree angle.
