Brilliant Red Object At Level Altitude Sighted Over Hutchinson, KS at 9:10PM CST On July 4th, 2010.

30-second video captured by Canon PowerShot A95 still camera in motion video mode. Object was sighted for 1-2 minutes & was highly brilliant prior to getting camera trained on it. We were facing northeast at the SW corner of 6th & Jackson. In my view it appeared to be on a curved trajectory (like a sewing needle, beginning at the blunt end on to the point) heading towards us then vearing off due-north as it faded into the distance. It appeared to be at a level altitude the entire time.
