((2nd Report from same source))

glowing red cylinder flying northeast without sound

object appeared to be a cyclinder, size indeterminate but I would say that if you compared it to a commercial jetliner, it would have been about 1 1/2 times the length and of the same diameter. speed impossible to determine but again if you imagine the movement of jetliner at altitude its speed would have been about the same. It was night and its exact altitude and speed cannot be determined. the object was a cyclinder which glowed along its entire length a dull cherry-red, like an electric element on a stove when it starts to heat up. the object moved in a uniform direction, north-east at a constant speed. no other lights or protrusions were observed, nor was the object heard to emit any sound.
