|Solid and silent red light flying over Des Moines, Iowa.
I was smoking on my front porch when I noticed a bright red light come into view east of my location. It was flying slower than a helicopter, but around the height of one. There was no sound and just one, solid, bright red light.
I couldn't take my eyes off of it as I watched it move east of my position toward the north. It then flew farther north until I could no longer see it blocked by houses and trees. When I could no longer see it, I went back inside my house to my computer and posted the event on my facebook status.
Again, I want to stress that I have seen and heard planes and helicopters fly around at night from my front porch, and the light I witnessed resembled nothing I have ever seen before. I'm no stranger to hot air balloons either. The following morning I checked the local news websites and did not see any mention of a UFO over the city.
This event will stay with me for the rest of my life.
