Extremely bright non flickering red light moving quickly over town and disappears in the west.

Looked north out the window and saw a bright steady red light in the sky moving fast from east to west. Thought it was a helicopter but no noise.

Ran to front of house to observe the light moving faster and in a blink of the eye disappeared quickly in the west. My wife came to the front and saw the light. The light was a extremely bright leaving no trail of smoke. The height of the light seemed high in the sky. The light passed directly over Mt. Carmel, Il.
