A very bright point of light seen in north sky.

Sighting, first week of April 2010 On the night of April 5th 2010 at about midnight, give or take 10 minutes, I was going to bed when I noticed a bright ruby red light to the north of my home.

The window beside my bed looks to the north and I have a clear view of Polaris just over the neighbors’ tree. I am in the habit of looking out at the sky just before I lay down, sort of a last look around the neighborhood.

On this night I saw a point of red light slightly lower than Polaris and slightly to the east of the star. With my arm out stretched the light was just over my thumb’s width East of the star. The sky was clear and visibility was good.

The light was very bright and looked almost like a laser pointer aimed directly at me. It was motionless and held its position from the time I noticed it until about 15 seconds later when it just went out. This was followed by a just as strange “Puff” of green light. A second or so after the red light went out there was a halo like flicker of light that reminded me of a light seen pointing away from you in a fog. It was as if something was in the way of the source of the green light and me. All I saw was the light that washed around the object.
