|Red blur in the night sky changed speed, luminosity, and then accelerated when I went outside
This occured early one night a couple of years ago. In the northwestern sky, I would guess about 60-75 degrees above the horizon, I saw a deep red blur up in the sky through my kitchen window, probably about the size of a thumb when held at arms length. Curious, I kept my eye on it for several moments to watch its slow southern to southwestern progress. Finally I went out the back door to get a better look. When I did, the center of the blur grew in intensity, as if it had been a light shining through clouds but the clouds had now broken apart. At this same moment several other points began to glow brightly within the haze. Immediately these lights and the glow surrounding them took off in the same direction that the object had been slowly drifting. It did not take off incredibly fast, but its movement was far more rapid than any plane would seem to have from that distance, and its acceleration from the slow drift was instantaneous. Its movement was also level with the earth the entire time I witnessed it, causing me to beleive it was not a falling celestial body.
I have never told anyone except my friends and family, or ever reported this sort of thing. But after doing some research and listening to other witnesses, I thought this encounter definitely merited some attention.
