Location: Binghamton, NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 minutes
A red sphere glowing object that moved extremely fast from place to place, hovered over the house, and then disappeared in a second.

The sky was very clear. I walked out of my parent’s home to get on my new motorcycle. I went to place my helmet on and happened to turn around to see if the door at the house was closed. As soon as I turned around I saw this hovering red glowing oblect (a very bright and dimming light). It was about 50 yards away from the house on the right hand side. The view of this object put me into serious shock...I was scared to death because it came down straight down towards the house (I was hiding behind my parent’s vehicle). It then flew very fast to the left of the house and was again in a dead stop. It then shot onto the top of the mountain for 5 to 10 seconds and back again to the same position that it was when I first saw it while it was glowing on and off. What I saw, I could not handle the scare it gave me. As soon as stood up behing the car, the object shot into the sky in a second and disappeared. I called the binghamton airport to ask if the was any airplanes, helicopters, or any objects flying around midnight. The airport told me that there was nothing flying in the vicinity of binghamton at all. It did not look like anything I have ever seen or thought existed. This object made no sound the whole time. I reported this by phone the morning after it happened to the Seattle UFO reporting center.
