light sitting in one place high in the sky for thirty minuts that i saw but others said all day, i watched light slowly leave.9-27-08

I went with my girlfriend to her hometown in post, Texas to visit her family. While at her uncles house about 7:00 we decided to go outside to watch the sunset, not two minutes after walking out of the house I noticed a large circle shaped light in the sky just sitting in one place not moving.

In amazement of what we were seeing I didn’t move I was scared if I left to get my camera it would be gone. About twenty minutes of watching this light a car pulled up beside us, a woman and young man get out asking if we were from Texas and if that light was always there I replied telling her that we are from the area but the light was very unusual and started to joke that it was a UFO, the woman commented to me that the light has been there all day but the people they have talked to blew it off saying it was a light over the prison, weather balloon or a plane on its way to Lubbock (nearby city).

The problem with these excuses is that it was not moving so it was no plane, there was nothing to hold the light that high above the prison, and of my knowledge we don’t even use weather balloons any more. At that same moment I noticed that the light was getting smaller turning a red orange color, ten minutes of this and the light that was so big about thirty minutes earlier was just the size of a small star.

It makes since to me that if it was a space craft the reason for it turning red and getting was that the ship was leaving the atmosphere.

I am very serious about what I saw this sighting needs to be documented.
