Bright red pulsating object in sky.

i walked outside to walk the dog and looked up in the sky and saw a large bright red pulsating object in the sky. per my iphone compass the object was located at 251 degrees west traveling southwest. i ran in called my kids to see the object and grab a camera and the object started to immediately get smaller and less bright, until it disap eared completely. it was not a metorite since it was not breaking up on its path. was not a plane, no flashing lights, not a planet in the sky since it was moving with no sound. didnt get image on my flip video it disappeared before i got it to record footage, i called schaumburg illinois police department to report object and they hadnt got any other reports at the time i had called it in. at around 10:35pm.
