Missiles or flares seen on New Year.

I stepped outside to celebrate midnight on new years. About 12:00:30, a bright red light came from the northeast horizon heading south. It moved fast like a jet or plane. It was very high like a plane.

My first thought was "wow what a strange plane." Then the second one came across the horizon as if it was chasing the first.

Few seconds later the second light fizzled out with a pulsing fade out. Then the other also started to pulse and fade out.
