Location: Galena, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
A very bright orange reddish stationary light in the eastern slightly southern sky about 30 degrees above horizon.

Location: Galena, IL Time: 9:17 pm CST approx.

Eastern sky somewhat south, opposite of where Jupiter was in the western sky and about the same distance from horizon.

A very bright light with a distinct orange red color was observed stationary in the sky. I checked where Jupiter was in the west, Orion was south west, and it was none of those. I thought maybe Mars but it was to bright and appeared large.

I went in the house to check the Internet for a sky map and when I came out again it was gone - maybe 4 minutes later.
