Reddish/Orange "Top" shaped flashing spacecraft 12-31-13, Palm Desert, CA

I heard fireworks around 9:00PM, and went ouside to see them. Too far away, not high enough and obstructed view, I was unable to see fireworks. So since I was out there I looked up to see the stars and saw red/orange flashing lights in the shape of a "top". At arms length it was the size of a quarter. As I watched it move, I ruled out that it was a plane, helicopter or blimp, as it changed direction spontaneously. It was so mesmerizing to witness something that my mind could not logically comprehend. When I decided it was a UFO it darted to the east, then vanished without a trace. There was no smoke or sound, but I kept looking to watch it reappear. it never did. And then I basically thought that I was crazy! No, not really! I felt so lucky to see the same activity so many others saw around the world! 12-31-13 9:15PM PST.

I saw an actual UFO! I'd like to volunteer to go up on that spacecraft!
