Shape: Circle
Duration:half hour
Round, yellowish white light, with flashing red light, that hovered in the western sky.

I went into the backyard to throw out some scraps after supper. I looked up at the sky and saw what I at first thought was the planet Venus. Then I noticed that Venus was a bright white light in the southwestern sky. I saw a yellowish white round light, that seemed to hover, more to the northern than Venus. It brightened a couple of times to bright white light, then dulled down again. It floated one way a little then another. I realized it was not a plane, as it hovered. It was not a helicopter as it made no noise. It moved very smoothly. I went in the house to get binoculars and looked at it. It had a red light that strobed and moved up and down the orb. I watched it float around until it moved off into the western horizon, behind trees and out of sight. Slowly and without noise. My husband saw it also. He is a pilot and knew it was not a plane.
