|Red Glowing Light viewed in Western Washington
On the evening of June 25th, 2010 my sister, daughter and I were driving south on our way home from an evening of shopping. It was about 9:45pm. I was driving and we were all admiring the full moon.
I noticed a red light in the sky at a 5 o’clock position from the moon. I thought it might be a planet and asked them that. It was about the size of the North Star when it first appears in the night sky. My daughter said if it was a planet it would be Mars because of the color. We were all looking at it and noticed that it was not steady in the sky and was pulsing slightly. It was not moving in big movements but steady, like when a helicopter is trying to stay stationary.
As we were watching it trying to figure out what it was its glow changed in size and its color was a vibrant red glow. It increased over 20% of its original size and continued pulsing. I asked my sister to get her camera out of her purse so we could get some video of it. As she was getting it out of her purse it decreased in size and went to how it was before.
I turned off the road I was on and traveled down a residential road with my hand out the driver’s side window taking video of the object. I had to stop when a car came up behind me. I turned towards home and that is when my daughter said that it is gone. When we pulled into our driveway I went to search the sky to see if there were any planes or anything, but nothing was there. Just the full moon.
I don’t know what we saw, but I know it is nothing I have ever viewed in the night sky before.
From the time I first noticed it to the time it vanished was close to 5 minutes.
I will get the video from my sister as soon as she returns from vacation and send it in.
