Was sitting at computer (South facing wall) when I heard a frog among the crickets outside. I got up and looked in the backyard through my East facing window(I never hear frogs out here)and saw a red horizontal bar of light slowly descending to the East. At first I thought it was some kind of firework. Only saw it for a few seconds before trees obscured its descent. Kept watching through the window for a minute, looked away then back again. Saw the red bar above the obscuring trees moving slowly south. The bar now had blue lights around it and descended again out of sight after a few seconds. Based on the distance and size it appeared to be from here, it was too big to be a drone. No visible FAA lights either. Very important to note that the sighting was right under a flight path for planes and helicopters, although from the distance I estimate the object was, it was far too low to have been a plane or a helicopter in the flight path. I saw no other objects in the flight path or parallel to it until after the sighting. I did not hear anything from the direction of the object. Waited with crappy camera to at least capture the light on video, but I did not see the ufo again.
