Duration:2-3 minutes
a red light, that going east, and all of a sudden, took off north and up at a hihg speed, gone in seconds

I and a friend (neighbor), were sitting outdoors, and seen a very bright red light comming from the west, going northeast.We Thought at first an airplane or helicopter, but could not hear sound of either, and looking closer, we could not see anything but the bright red light (not blinking) then it went behind a tree, so we watched it as it cleared the tree, Then it looked like it STOPPED, then all of a sudden it must have gone at a very high speed (going North) at about 2 o`clock, and it got smaller until it was gone, just about 4 seconds, at a high speed. I have never seen anything like it, I am 71 years old, it was not a balloon or fireworks,I can not explain what it was.
