Duration:30 to 45 seconds
On 02/24/01 at 11:32 p.m. I saw a difuse, moving red glow in the sky while I was driving

I was traveling east in my car when I noticed a light in the southeastern sky. It was a fairly dim, difuse red glow, circular to oval in shape, and about one and a half to two times the size of the full moon. It was a cloudy night and I may have been seeing it thought the clouds. As I watched, the glow moved slowly to the east. As it got nearly to the horizon, it seemed to get somewhat dimmer and more elongnated. Just before it reached the horizon it seemed to fade quickly and disappear, although it's hard to be sure about that because soom branches were in the way. I continued east three to four miles, but saw nothing further. I am a letter carrier in this area and have never reported a UFO before.
