Red Round Glowing Light. Still except once made a small triangle. Maybe some orange lights. Disappeared by shrinking.

I saw a red light in the sky that was too large to be a planet as I was heading to the store. To get a better look (because I was convinced I was looking at a plane or drone) I drove to view the object better. It was late, between 10:30 pm and 11:00pm. I pulled onto a dark street that overlooked a field were Kelton Elementary School once stood. As I watched, What I 1st thought was moving was in fact still. The object seemed to be glowing red (sometimes I thought I saw orange). The size kept changing..it seemed to shrink a bit. At one point the red light moved, slightly in a triangle shape. The red light was too far into the sky to be a drone. I did not notice any other lights in the sky, but for stars. It was making me crazy that I had no one to witness this, and my cell phone was dead. I suddenly saw 2 teenage girls in the field to my left. I shouted down to them and asked if they too could see the light from where they stood (I was up higher on the street, and the field was below me). At 1st they could not see it because they were looking in the wrong direction. Once they spotted it, they both yelled...what is that. All the sudden it began to shrink in size until it was gone..about 3 seconds. They both started shouting what was that..thanked me for showing to them..and I drove off. The light was too far away to be a drone and way too far in the sky. Too see my vantage point, you can google Key Stone Oaks High School, My Lebanon, PA. I was parked on Delwood Ave. in Dormont, PA. I'd say I was looking toward the Southern Sky when I saw it. This is driving me crazy!! What did I see?
