aircraft with pinkish pulsating light travelling in straight line.

Just before turning in I went outside to look around as I will often do. Full moon that night, warm and quite bright out.

I spotted a small pinkish light heading my way from the northwest. I assumed it was a helicopter.

It approached in a perfectly straight line and did not appear to be travelling too fast but of course I couldn't gage the height of it,so could only guess at the speed. Maybe 150 mph? It looked to be only a few hundred feet above my house as it passed over.

The light was brighter pink by now and appeared to pulsate slightly almost like it was a burning ball.

I could just barely make out the shape of the thing and think I could see a missle or cigar shape with no wings or rotors visible. The light on the underside more or less obscured the actual craft.

I strained to hear any sound and I may have heard a very faint hissing sound as it passed over.

It continued in a straight line to the southeast and eventually dissappeared in the night sky.

I will add I've never see anything like this before and have seen countless helicopters and aircraft large and small over the years.
