Duration:4 to 5 minutes
While looking North my husband noticed a reddish object rising from the Northern Hemisphere. He directed our attention to the object, which made no sound. As it rose from the North, it continued it's path in a Southerly direction. The speed at which it was traveling was that of a satellite. It traveled about the length of the big dipper, stopped, then proceeded in a North Easterly direction. It didn't turn, it stopped and changed direction. Initially, it was a reddish color, but when it began travelling Northeast, it's color changed to a grayish color. Throughout the siting the object was not focusable, it was blurry, but it did seem to have a saucer shape. As it travelled Northeast, about half the distance of the big dipper, it faded completely from our view. My sister-in-law was a sceptic, until she witnessed this siting with the three of us. This was a bonafied UFO. If anyone else witnessed this, please document it on this website.
