Reported: 8/26/2003 11:52:58 PM 23:52
Posted: 8/28/2003
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Bright Red Light hovering above LA

A red light that looked like a flare shot in the sky in the sky near mars moved NW then slowed and stayed stationary for about 5 minutes. There was no wind. There was no sound except for a plane that took off at the nearby Burbank airport.

The light sometimes dimmed then brightened several times.

Finally the light streaked off SE leaving what looked like a fine trail and diminished in intensity quite soon after. It almost seemed like it left an object behind it as it took off but I could be mistaking what was left behind as a star.
