Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
A very bright red light appears and disapears in three minutes after just huvering in the sky.

My son asked my brother to borrow his binnoculors because he heard mars was near by.

So my brother got them for him so we all were looking up in the sky suddenly my son said, "dad look at that red light is that mars?" he said, so everybody looked up again and there it was a bright red object as high as some of the stars. It appeared to just sit there so we were all wondering what it could be. I got the binnoculars to take a lil closser look and it was bright red,half around the circle was more red lights aroun the object there had to be at least 20 lights but the same color as the object. all of a sudden it faded a bit and finally it disapeard as if it was sucked up into space. I called various news stations to see if they had any other calls on this but they all said oh its just mars.

I know and everyone else knows that this can not be a planet. Planets dont just get sucked up into space the way we wittnessed it.
