Location: Babylon, NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
Red pulsating object visualized by my wife and I over Babylon NY, moving due South and abruptly disappearing..

I was watching television with my wife at approximately 22:30hrs, when I noticed a pulsating light in the sky from my window. This amorphous light was moving due South. Its altitude was approximately 3000-5000 feet.

I asked my wife to look at it, and she thought it looked like an aircraft on fire. We turned out the lights, and then went to our porch outside our bedroom to follow it. There was no sound coming from the object. It continued in a straight line from North to South and then spontaneously disappeared. There was no further sighting after that. This event lasted approximately 1 minute.

Having some flight experience, I found it odd that there was no sound for an object that was at such a low altitude. The light emitted by this craft was red, and slightly pulsating.

I was unable to ascertain any specific shape to the craft, but it was small. There was no cloud cover to account for the immediate disappearance of the craft. It did not change altitude during our sighting. It was not seen again after that.
