I saw a bright red light in the far distance that moved slightly, faded in and out slightly, and a piece broke off and fell.

I went outside to let my cat out, and i happened to look up. The night was perfect clear, and i saw this bright RED looking star up in the western sky! at first i thought it could be mars, however i remembered that it couldn't be seen at that time, so i slowly started to move southward. I noticed that the red light started to dim a little bit, and then get bright agian. this light was brighter than anything else in the sky! i knew it wasn't a plane because there were no blinking blue lights. then it moved up slightly and a little piece of it seemed to "break off" and fall down and then faded away...soon after the light too faded away...this is by far the most bizzare thing i've ever seen in the sky.
