Cross shaped lights to the west of Mt. Greylock viewed from Vermont

Looking southward at Mt. Greylock (MA) from Stamford, VT, a very bright red-tinted light was observed to the right (west) of the Mt. Greylock peak at approximately 22:30pm EST. It was the brightest point in the sky this evening. It remained stationary for about 15 minutes. When viewed with astronomical binoculars on a tripod, the pattern was a perfect cross, with 3 dots on each leg about the center dot (total of 13 illuminated dots). The lights moved southeast and increased in elevation, then became gradually dimmer and faded completely out of sight by 23:00pm.
