Red-orange crescent shaped light hanging above tree line, then faded out of sight.

I was letting my dogs outside and glanced up, when I caught sight of a lightning bug flashing past. I live in the middle of town and was facing West, when I noticed a red-orange crescent shape just in line with some trees. At first I thought it was the moon, because tonight there is a waxing crescent, so I wasn't paying too much attention to it at first. I looked away and back a few times, noting what I thought was a dark, rounded glove or sphere shape with the light curved along one edge, which is why initially thought it was the moon. I glanced away to call my dogs back in, and when I looked back up, the crescent shaped light began to fade. After about 15 more seconds the light faded out completely.
