A MOVING RED BALL OF LIGHT.

A SLOW MOVING RED BALL OF LIGHT. IT WENT AROUND IN CIRCLES. THEN UP AND DOWN. SIDE TO SIDE. WE LIVE IN A MOUNTAIN REGION, BUT UFO WAS ABOVE THE MOUNTAINS. IT ALMOST LOOKED AS IF IT WAS A STAR BUT IT WAS MOVING. WE CALLED THE LOCAL TELEVISION STATION WLOS NEWS 13 AND ASKED IF ANYONE CALLED IN REPORTING THE UFO. THEY SAID YES, THERE SWITCH BOARD WAS LIT UP. THEY SAID THEY CALLED THE ASHEVILLE AIRPORT BUT THEY DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING ON RADAR. UFO WAS IN THE SOUTHWEST SKY. I AM A PILOT AND HAVE SEEN MANY AIRCRAFT BUT NOTHING LIKE WHAT WE SAW.
