Shape: Light
Duration: 1 minute
Bright red light moving fast and high.

At approximately 20:55 on January 11th, 2021 I observed a bright, deep red light out of my living room bay windows facing south. We can see the airliners as they begin their approach to Lindbergh Field (SAN) out of these windows, and at night the bright white landing lights are had to miss. I saw this deep red light moving much faster than the airliners normally do, and moving east to west, instead of south-north like the airliners.

I pointed it out to my wife, and we watched it for about 15 seconds before it was blocked by my house. We went outside to the front yard and watched it for an additional 10-ish seconds. It seemed like is was high and moving very fast. We lost sight of it as it grew dimmer.

The light was very bright, a deep red color overall, steady, no blinking or flashing. No additional lights were seen, (like anti-collision lights) It moved very quickly along a straight path.
