Bright red light at high speed

I was standing beside my pickup getting my deer hunting gear together. I looked to the north and saw a very bright red light going to the west at a very high speed.it was a little above the tree line and didnt seem more than a few miles away.it had no strobes or other flashing lights and i could hear no noise.

When i first saw it, it was about halfway across the sky.it took about 15 seconds to finish crossing to the west and disappeared over the horizon.
