Are you seeing it right now? It's probably Sirius, as it's currently above the horizon, to the west.

Weird, I remember it being higher than it is and more easy for me to see. I had to go outside to find it again but earlier I could see it from my window.
Regardless, while it is now LOWER in the sky

I was about to post on this as well, from Nor Cal.
I've seen some bright stars, but this one takes the cake by a mile. That thing is bright! It's low as well as noted.
I know perspective is everything, but it seems much closer than any other star in the sky. That could be due to the sheer brightness of it though.
I've seen venus many times, I've never seen it like this.

Nah it wasnt red, and i've seen Venus plenty of times and this was 10 times brighter. But I suppose its still possible it was Venus. Just brighter than usual maybe?
