Location: Lee, NH
Shape: Light
Duration:5 Seconds
Bright red light close to ground behind trees; completely dissapeared upon second look, except for red glow in sky that followed us.

While riding down the highway after the Lee Circle on the exit towards Portsmouth, my mother and I witnessed a bright red light, such as the light you see at any intersection, and it was not fully viewable because it was directly behind leaves that hung over our van, and it illuminated the leaves.

For a second before we got close to it, we could see a light hanging slightly below the leaves.

When my mom and I looked again (behind us), the light was completely gone. It seemed to have mostly a heart shape.

After the sighting, there seemed to be a red glow in a certain area of the sky that almost appeared to follow us, because there was always a large red patch of clouds that changed places when I looked out the van window that night.

I believe this is the second sighting of my life, because about seven years ago I saw what almost looked like a "shooting star", only much bigger and closer, and also moving way too slow. It appeared to crash into the ground somewhere within a few miles, but I didn't hear a crash, perhaps because it was too far away.
