Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Shape: Light
Duration:45mins
I WAS LEAVING EL RENO,OKLAHOMA,APPROXIMATELY 40 MILES WEST OF OKC ABOUT 9PM.

TRAVELING NORTH ON HWY 81 I NOTICED A VERY BRIGHT STAR-LIKE OBJECT IN THE EAST SKY OVER OKC. IT WAS SOMEWHAT LOWER THAN OTHER STARS AND IT WAS THE ONLY STAR IN THAT PART OF THE SKY.

I ASKED MY FRIEND IF SHE THOUGHT IT WAS STAR AND SHE REPLIED,NO,ITS GOT A RED-GOLD CAST TO IT AND SEEMED TO BE AWFULLY BRIGHT. I THOUGHT IT WAS PULSING SLIGHTLY AND COULD BE A PLANE BUT IT NEVER MOVED .

WE WATCHED IT ALL THE WAY TO OUR HOUSE WHICH IS 33MILES ONE WAY. UPON ARRIVING I GOT OUT MY BINOS AND WATCHED IT AND IT SLOWLY FADED AWAY. NOT FLEW AWAY,JUST FADED TO A PINPOINT. CLOUDLESS SKY, STARS VISIBLE ALL AROUND. SAW A FEW PLANES OVERHEAD.PERFECT NIGHT FOR SKYWATCHING. WEATHER CLEAR. THIS IS MY SECOND REPORT IN 3 WEEKS. COULD DISCERN ANY SHAPE. I WONDER IF IT COULD BE A FLARE OF SOME KIND.NO AIRPORTS NEAR THIS GENERAL AREA.

CHECKED THE FOLLOWING NIGHT AND NO STAR WAS IN THE PLACE WHERE THIS LIGHT HAD OCCURED.
