Red-Gold Orb over Plano ,Texas

June 27. 2010 5:45pm. Still Daylight. Periodic slight cirrus types of clouds were in the sky.

I was in the pool at my friends house in Plano , Texas. I looked up into the sky looking east and noticed a tiny pulsing REDish Gold spec of light in the air. It was moving northward very slowly. The object was about the size of a head of a pin seen at arms length.

I observed for about 5 minutes. It stopped moving and stayed in a stationary position.. I said to myself that i am going to go to my car to get my digital canon camera. And i did.

When i got back it was hard to relocate the object at first but i finally was able. It was sitting there for another 4 minutes and then slowly moved off to the north...

Minutes later, I noticed another Goldish red orb in another area in the sky. Basically overhead but just a few degrees off to the south from just overhead... It was larger or lower and perhaps at the cirrus cloud height. I took a few pictures with my canon camera.. Again it was still broad daylight and it almost seemed to glisten in a red gold type of light.. It was not close enough to tell if it was actually metallic or if it was a light. I decided for some strange reason to turn the flash on the camera to on.. When I did that and took a photo. The object that was standing stationary in the sky for about 5 minutes rapidly accelerated toward the southwest.. And then accelerated again and vanished. It was a two stage acceleration, going from still to rapid speed m then suddenly accelerates again to super fast and it was gone.

When looking at the photo that I took, and after I enlarged it, looks like all those other photos that you would see of UFOs in the national enquirer, and I laughed to myself..

To the naked eye it was more visible and did not represent any known aircraft. It was neither a bird nor a balloon. I did not know of any bird or balloon that will accelerate the way this thing did, or stay stationary they it did while being watched in the North Texas sky..
