|Red light over Lynnwood, Washington during Perseid meteor shower.
The night was clear, affording optimal viewing for the Perseid meteor shower, so I took advantage and watched for them. At about 3:30 a.m., I noticed a red dot moving roughly from west to east across the night sky.
It seemed to be quite high in the sky, was moving at an incredible rate of speed, and was completely silent. It crossed my field of visibility in less than a minute's time.
This was no airplane and it certainly was not a meteor.
