on sunday the 24th of august at 00:14hrs we witnessed a bright red spot in the sky as red as a stop light. It looked like a star.we all looked up and we all seen it. This star was moving slowly across the sky it lasted about 8 minutes in the sky before fading into space.Before fading into the space it started to flash a bit,then it tilted a bit and flashed some more and as ifit got sucked into space.

I called a few local news stations and there response to it was that it was mars,wich we all doubted,planets dont move and just dissapear.I told my son this is the first and last time we see something like this.

We gazed up into the sky for a few nights hoping to see this phenomenon once more but no luck, but this morning we saw it again at 00:12hrs this this very early sunday morning on the 31st of august 2003.Only seven days later all the same witnesses same location in the sky as if it was a replay, this time I called my sister who lives half a mile from sighting she also witnessed it. we took pictures of it,the weird thing about this was ,that when we took the picture the glare from the object would dim out with the flash of the camera it seemed like it would respond to the flash of the camera. then it flashed a few times and like the past week it was on its way.

This a shock to all who seen this and we all have our own thories or opinions , the news says its a reflection from mars ,wich i think its a bunchof bull shit excuse my language.I know thats its not mars im hoping U F O.

My story is true i can swear on the bible. Please if you have any clue of what this my be please E-mail me at ((e-address deleted)). plaese help us to get your opinion on this. IT is 03:28hrs pacifc time sunday the 31st of august.
