|Bright reddish and yellow lights west of Bolivar.
I was outside smoking a cigarette and I looked to the western sky. I saw a bright reddish light, much brighter than the stars. I watched it closely and it appeared to have a white or yellowish light circling it. At times the reddish light was not visible and only the other light was. It was moving up and down in a small area and at times would move up diagonally very fast before moving back down to the original position slowly.
It then flashed blue once and started to slowly move north. As it was moving north it went back to the original light pattern, and was getting harder to see. It eventually moved behind a tree line and I lost visual contact.
