Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
A red light about the size and shape of a star moving at about the speed of a shooting star but with no tail. As I watched it it slowed and changed direction.

I am a security patrol officer and I spend long hours sitting in a vehicle,so when I do exit the vehicle a good strech is nesisary.As I had my back arched and head back I noticed a small solid red light moving across the sky above me going what appeard South to North. I assumed it was a plane but it was moving very fast and there was no blinking lights on it at all.I then thought a shootong star?,but no tail... As I realized what I was looking at it quickly and visibly slowed almost to a stop,before performing what looked like a loop de loop and shooting off East to West.At this time I saw what looked like a second object appear and take off after the other one.(I say "appear" because I diddnt see where it came from) The entire event took less than twenty seconds.
