|Bremerton Wa. Bright red light. 14 min. 20-30 mph. 3/5/07
At 7:05 PM 3/05/07 I went onto my back deck (which faces west) but was looking up to the SSE at the stars. I saw a bright red light apparent distance 5 to 10 miles SSE and about the same size as Venus is in the western sky, proceeding north bound.
At first I thought it was a helicopter and I got out a pair of 8 power binoculars and saw no other lights. What got my attention the most was its speed (apparent 20 to 30 mph) and no other lights and as it got closer, no sound. It took about 14 minutes to get to just east of my house where it just disappeared.
I am an ex Air traffic controller with over 20 years of experience.
