Shape: Unknown
Duration:4 minutes
Unknown silent, lighted craft hovered overhead, Buffalo NY

A craft of unknown shape and size, at an altitude of 4,000 to 5,000 ft. approached from the east, making no noise, and emitting an intense red glow, with yellowish back-lighting. The craft initially maintained a straight forward motion and consistent speed (although it was much slower than a jet plane).

As the craft approached the apex of the sky above me, slightly to my north, it slowed even further, it came to a complete stop, and hovered in that position for about a half minute. then it appeared to lift straight upward at a high rate of speed, still silent, as it lifted away, the lights became smaller and dimmer, until it was no longer visible.

The sky conditions where partly cloudy, and I did see jet plane traffic overhead at their normal 30+ thousand feet.
