Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Meandering bright light in sky desends and seems to land.

I live on the north side of the city near the Mall. Around the time mentioned I stepped out of my front door to get some air and the sky was clear and I I had a good view of the south an western area of it when I observed a rather bright red-orange light somewhat like a diamond shape but unable to be sure of its exact shape hovering in the south and coming closer to my location. I first thought it was a plane or helicopter that police use but it had no anti collision lights on it as per FAA regs and the whole thing seemed lit with up a strange light unlike a chopper. It hovered in the area then veered west slightly and desended fairly fast almost looking like it landed not far away. I was tempted to go and check it out but was too tired and it was too cold. It may just have been a kids toy remote controlled helicopter with a light on it but the light seemed rather bright for a toy. I guess its just Unidentified.
