Location: Spring Valley, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 Minutes
mysterious stationary red light stationary in Southeast, that slowly started to move, gradually gaining speed then disapering

While looking for fireworks displays from hill top home in Casa De Oro area {a section, more or less, of Spring Valley} Saw steady red light either stationary or moving very slowly. Looked at it through binoculars and it looked like a ball of fire burning steadily.

There were no flashing lights on it indicating a helicopter or airplane.

After a few minutes it started throbbing in light intensity at maybe 80 cycles per minute. It then started to move on after being virtually still, gaining speed then suddenly disappearing, as if it were switched off. It then reappeared a little further down range moving southeast.

Thought at first it might be a flare but it did not move like one because it would stop, change in intensity, then move on, slowly at first but rapidly gaining speed, plus it did disappear briefly and suddenly only to reappear maybe 20 seconds latter.

None of us were drinking or using any sort of drugs...size wise it had the same perspective as the planet Venus. It actually was near Venus, as well as Saturn , at one point, and separate from the two, so it was not the planet Venus as I could see both Venus and the object in question. I am super blown away that this has been reported in previous years, consecutively , on the same date.....It was very hard to Gage just how high up it was. We all saw it, it was a real anomaly.....
