Location: Salt Lake City, UT
Shape: Changing
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Bright planet shaped white light that travelled in the night sky that went out replaced with a much smaller red light a short distance.

Looked to the sky to observe possible meteor shower sighting. Observed a larger bright light I assumed was a planet in the southwest sky. Many smaller stars were visible which surprised me since I live in the city. The light then proceeded to move in a southeast diagonal direction. It stopped and the light went completely out. To the left of where the light went out a smaller red light appeared. It did not blink. I watched that for a while and then it went out. I was thinking to myself that I wished I had gone in the house to beckon my husband outside but I knew it would be gone by then so I stayed put.
