Red orb light hovers over couple in San Francisco, CA 12/30/2011

At approximately 10:30 pm on the evening of December 30th, 2011, in San Francisco, CA, on a deserted side street near Ghiradelli Square, my boyfriend and I saw a bright red, round light arc through the sky beginning on our right. We both stood still and followed the light with our eye, when it was directly over our heads it slowed to a stop, hovered absolutely silent, as we were looking up it started to come closer and closer and appeared bigger and the light more diffused.

When my boyfriend quickly grabbed his camera and took its picture, the object took off in the opposite direction from which it came extremely fast. We barely got any image of it.
