Duration:1 hour
Large intensely bright object low in shy some distance away

My girl friend and I noticed what looked like a bright star low in the shy to the west of west Little Rock around 8:30 PM on 3/14/04. It was too far away to see a shape but it was very bright. We could see what looked like a red light manbe once every 5 minutes or so. The light was eratic in movement but generally moved to the North over an hour until we lost sight of it above the trees to the north west of our house. It was a very clear night and the stars were quite bright, but not nearly as bright as the object. We called my girl friends father who lives 9.5 miles SSE of our location and it was clearly visable to them also. It could have easily been the sun (which had set) reflecting off an object drifting to the north, but it was very bright and low in the sky. I don't believe it was a regular aircraft because of the time duration and it looked very large relitive to the distance it was away. I took a few digital pictures but I did not have a tripod but I can send them if you wish.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witnesses were looking at Venus. PD))
