Red Trinagle over chillicothe illinois woods

I was standing on my porch having a phone conversation looking into the sky, I was a bright red object. I have seen many airplanes and it wasn't anything like that. The light was so bright it was like somebody shining a laser pointer into my eyes. I observed for about 10 minutes, it was moving faster then any aircraft i've seen. All of a sudden it stopped dead in the air i looked down at my phone in disbelief to tell my friend and it disappeared when i looked up.

I have a wide up backyard and there's no way it could have possibly covered enough ground to be out of my field of vision.
