|Decending bright white light in the sky lasting for 45 minutes visible from the midwest USA in the PM.
Earth Coordinates Latitude 39.4669° Longitude -87.3781° February 21, 2007, February 22, 2007, Bright Light visible from these coordinates between the hours of 20:00 and 20:45 descending steadily from 145 degrees elevation with respect to the earth’s horizon down to the horizon. Bright white light alternating sporadically from white to red then back to white. 1/20th as bright as an eighth moon and 5 times brighter than an air plane landing lights. Similar in nature to a satellite in motion which are normally barely visible to the naked eye if visible at all. The main difference between a satellite and this is the amplitude of brightness and the alternating color. One other similarity to a satellite is the cyclical nature in which it appears. One way or another, this is an extra terrestrial object. I have spent a reasonable amount of time tracking satellites which are tracked and publicized as visible from these coordinates. Having been unable to identify a man made object in this orbit which emits this type of light I have no choice but to classify this as a UFO sighting.
