Shape: Circle
Duration:20 min approx
Glowing orb like object. Very bright yellow and red. Low western sky.

I watched it for about 10 minutes. Due west low on the sky. Looked like a plasma ball through the telescope but then again my telescope isn't very good. It got lower and lower very slowly, then just went out(saw it with my own eyes) It was glowing red and yellow pulsating very brightly! Very interesting. Wondering if anyone else saw it or knows what it was. There is a comet that is supposed to be visible this month, but I'm almost positive that was not it ( no tail, and it moved very very slow) Brightness was about 4 bright stars combined at its brightest.
