|Illuminating circular object whisking through the night sky, changing colors, and disappearing (only to reappear).
It started as us looking for the big dipper (during a camping trip) and we noticed a star brighter than all the other stars but was in too odd of a location to be the North Star. Then it got smaller, smaller, smaller, and finally disappeared. It came back, bright as it was before and it started moving in odd motions to distinguish it from a shooting star. After whisking across the sky it turned red and got very close to the moon. Soon after that it became its brightest again and it stayed right beneath our sight of the moon for about three hours. Our cell phones had no service that night.
