|Flickering red light that lasted for about five minutes, then the craft disappeared.
At around 8:00 P.M., my mom and I saw what appeared to be the basket of a hot-air balloon without the balloon above it. Directly near the basket, there appeared to be what looked like a flame that was flickering.
At about 8:03 the flame went out and the craft began to move away from us. You could still see the dark outline of the object. Then at about 8:05 the craft disappeared from sight.
