|Large red objected spotted in Boone, NC.
Around 7:30 Oct. 21 I went for a run around my neighborhood. It is dark enough at this hour to see the stars clearly. We are in the mountains and are away from light pollution. Near 8 pm I was jogging back in an attempt to return home when I noticed a very bright red object in the sky. It was perfectly still at this point. At first I thought to myself "that is one odd star."
Then the realization that that couldn't be a star hit me. It was far too low, blazing red, and brighter/larger than any star that I have ever seen. Just then the object moved down and went rushing off to the left behind some trees. It took me 5-8 seconds to run to the clearing. It had completely vanished. This was seen near the Deep Gap area.
