Sighting of a silent bright glowing red orb over Avondale, AZ.

Last night (03-15-2013) I saw from my backyard a glowing red orb hovering for several minutes in the sky just northwest of my home in Avondale AZ. It was a very clear night. We live near an airport and see air traffic constantly so all of us can easily spot a plane or helicopter and even blimps day or night. This was definitely none of the above. The orb was completely silent. After hovering for a few minutes it began to move east very slowly then faded and disappeared. Shortly afterward a helicopter came over the house and circled over the area where the object had been. Since it was after 11 P.M. we were unable to see what type of helicopter it was. This is the second red orb I’ve seen in my lifetime. I had a much closer encounter with one in 1998 or 99’ in California that lasted about 10 minutes.
