V-shaped light in sky

I took photos of a V shaped "fireball" thing in the Western part of the sky yesterday. I thought it was Venus till I saw that it was shaped like a V. I have several pics of it. I didn't take any video because it was so small it would have just looked like a dot.

the object was not moving very fast. It was red/orange.

Looked like it was on fire. It might not have been moving at all, but locked in orbit because it seemed to move with the rotation of the sky. It was in the sky for at least 10min. The pictures I took have all the exact times on them. After I took the photos I got out my telescope which is a Celestron Powerseeker 114 EQ D=114mm F1=900mm F/8 Model#21045 I witnessed the object at about 8:30pm cst in the west about 20-30 degrees above the horizon. No apparent movement. Seemed to be locked in geo stationary orbit. I will link my pictures and a video I did asking for anyone with info about what it is to contact me.
