Duration:4+ minutes
Very Bright orange/red light seen overhead in Simi Valley 3-19-10

Approx 8:15 pm, 3-19-10, Very Bright orange/red light almost directly above not moving for at least 1+ minute getting brighter holding then dimming and almost flashing brightly and dimming with no set frequency. Faded out to a barley seeable whitish/yellow blob for maybe 10+ seconds then bright again and flashing dimming up and down, still not moving almost directly overhead. After 1 min or so of this, it started moving slowly toward the east/south east doing the same brightening fading thing as when it was still. As it was moving it then faded out to the barely seeable whitish/yellow blob for maybe 2 minutes then brightened again as it approached near the horizon. It then faded out to the barely seeable whitish/yellow blob and appeared to start turning towards the left, then disappeared.

The whole thing lasted for maybe 4 minutes or so.

I have seen many satellites, meteors, planes and jets and this was nothing like any of those.
