Shape: Light
Duration:10 min
Red light in the southern sky, low just above the tree line. Suspended in the same spot for over 10 minutes

While out rollerblading last night noticed a large red object suspended in the sky. I was looking South in the night sky. The object just cleared the tree line and looked to be fairly low in the sky approximately 10 miles away. The light was a pulsating red light which moved up and down, (in relation to the tops of the trees). The weather was clear and there was no cloud cover. I watched the object for about ten minutes, it was just suspended in the Southern sky. There were no flashing lights and it did not appear to be a plane,a flare, or a helicopter. When I went to get my husband, the object was no longer visible. I do not know if it flew away or if it just moved out of our line of vision. This is about the third time I have seen this light in the sky during different times of the year. It always is in the same spot and some times it is visible for longer periods of time.

((NUFORC Note: We do not know what it was the witness observed, but the location in the sky where she saw the object is generally where the star, "Arcturus," is located, I believe. It is a bright star, and it "twinkles." PD))
