Red/Orange Object Hovering During Firework Display In SCouth Carolina

Myself and two friends went to watch the fireworks display at the Buster Boyd Bridge in Lake Wylie, S.C.. While the fireworks were exploding I noticed a red mark in the sky off to the right of my field of vision. It was stationary and hovering directly above Venus and Jupiter. I watched it for a few minutes before I told my friends to check it out.

It stayed there for about 5 minutes the took a direct path south, then stopped and hovered for a couple minutes and, then changed direction towards the north and continued to hover, a few minutes after the fireworks had ended it abruptly took of at a very high rate of speed heading westward. It was a steady red/orange color and it had a flashing light.

If I had to estimate the altitude of the craft I would say somewhere between 2000-2500 feet in the air
