1:15am Feb 26 2001 red & white strobe like object moving rapidly

At 1:15am Feb. 26 2001 we were standing on our second floor patio and saw a red & white strobe like flasing object. It was very far away and about the size of a dime from our view point. It crossed our horizen in about four minutes. Moving much too fast to be an air craft. We were facing in a southwest ward direction.

((NUFORC Note: It seems to us that a high-flying aircraft would be visible for the amount of time indicated by the witnesses. However, we do not know what it was they witnessed. A dime at arm's length is approximately the percieved size of a full moon. PD))
