I wasn't planning to report this until I read the recent sightings in Georgia and Florida of green and red lights.
I walked outside around 8:45pm to smoke a cigarette. I looked up at the stars like I always do at night when I go out to smoke. While scanning the sky I noticed a bright red object moving at a steady pace.
This object seemed to be swaying a little bit as I observed it. It appeared to be at a very high altitude that of a jet liner (30,000 feet or more).
I couldn't hear anything( but I live near the Interstate and its quite noisy). The light was constant with no strobe and appeared bright but very high in the sky.
I watched it for about a minute moving from West to East before I could no longer see it. It may have turned slightly to the south before it disappeared in the night sky. I have seen many helicopters and planes flying at night but this was different. This light seemed as if it was fire.
I wanted to post this to encourage others who may have had a closer look a this object.
I really want to know what it was I saw!
