Duration:30 sec
bright shiny red globe moving slow but able to change direction quickly

I was parked on the sweet water river,about 15 miles south of Atlantic City, looking east down a canyon, when this red globe [looked like large red light] came up out of the canyon moving slow, when it seemed that it detected my presence, it stopped in mid flight, made an abrupt turn to the so, went straight up a canyon wall [ap. 200ft.] turned back to the east down into the canyon and disappeared, but there were many times of seeing light formation's in the wide open skies at night, but that was up close, no more than a 600 to a 1000 ft away, because it is pitch black it was hard to tell. I know the terrian well enough to approximate the distance.
