Duration:30 seconds
Slow bright light, no sonic sound and turned sharply and light turned red and disappeared

At approximately 8 PM Central time, I went outside to smoke a cigarette and as usual I look up at the stars. I saw a very bright light, I figured it was a star until I realized it was moving slowly, thinking it was a plane I tracked its course and realized it wasn’t making any residual sonic noises associated with planes.

I have lived in Aurora Illinois for 5 or so years and have watched out skies every night it was clear. I star gaze and look for constellations.

This light moved slowly, about the rate of a plane, but there were no blinking lights like on most planes and the spotlight was facing straight down, then it moved east and dimmed and the light turned a pinpoint red and disappeared. I don’t know what I saw but it if it was a plane it was really quiet and it turned like no other plane I have seen in my 45 years.
