|Point of light moving quickly
While looking out 22nd floor window, notice point of light, high above a very tall building. Color was orange/red, twinkling, unusually large. Point of light was travelling "what-seemed-to-be" north to south. Just to the left of ORION, (if that helps...). It was inside our atmosphere..that I know!! After one sec of spotting it...it decended at a very high rate for approx 1.5 secs at downward slope. Point of light blinked out, before it moved behind the building. The building DID NOT block the light blinking out...it went out before it passed behind the building..my husband...sits in his office...like you I'm sure..in front of his computer EVERYDAY...his window looks east. He is very aware of the light patterens that blink in the night, on an everyday basis. He claims he saw a point of light, 45 min prior in a totally different place, matching the same description. This orange/red twinkling point of light, was unusualy large, to be suspended in mid air for 4-5 sec's. It was something he claims he has NEVER seen before in differentiation to fixed winged aircraft and helicopters flying in the vicinity. He says you mentioned something about a fireball. He says....SORRY...NO FIREBALL...FIREBALLS dont hover for 4-5 sec's..then just blink out....or maybe they do...who knows. This is our report.
