Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Very bright orange planet like light, sphere, with slight tail and tiny red light near the tail, slowly moving East.

Very bright orange planet like light with slight orange tail in the North, North-West sky noticed high in the sky at 9:50 pm. I watched the object for 30 seconds or so and noticed it was moving very slowly East. A tiny red light was visible from the tail area. It was brighter than all other stars or planets, and 50% bigger than Venus. Did not look like the space station, which is smaller, moves much, much faster and which appears closer to earth. Went inside to grab camera and binoculars, light was still there, but began to slowly fade away. Red light plus slight shadow of a solid object were the last parts to be seen. We have quite a bit of air traffic in the area, and this looked nothing like an aircraft.
