|Red Pulsing Sphere Photographed and Videoed by two witnesses
On February 22, 2013 at about 11:30 PM was driving westbound on Limonite Ave about 3/4 of a mile West of the 15 fwy in the City of Eastvale California when I spotted an object in the sky I could not identify. I was listening to new reports on the radio of a meteor that had passed over Southern California about an hour prior and I was scanning the sky hoping to catch a glimpse of a second meteor when I saw a Red Glowing Sphere that looked like it had a slight haze around it. The Object was south of me over a residential neighborhood and moving in a northwesterly direction. I pulled over and started filming it with my cell phone camera (HD). I filmed two video segments and took several still photos.
I had a hard time judging the size and distance to the object which was moving much slower than a meteor and not near as bright. It was also gaining altitude not losing it. I think it was only about the size of a basketball and probably only a few hundred feet away. There was no sound or noise coming from the object that I could hear. It did remind me of a chinese lantern or little hot air balloon but it appear to be a perfectly round ball with a pulsating light in the exact center and not a candle at the bottom as you would expect from a lantern.
The object moved diagonally across my westerly path and gained altitude. Shortly after it crossed in front of the moon it disappeared. Its speed seemed to be slower than an airplane but it is hard to judge exactly how fast it was going because it was hard to tell how far away and how big it was. If it was the size of basket ball and only a few hundred feet away then I would guess its speed to be about 10 mph. I am sure it was not a real airplane, helicopter nor toy or models size version.
Like I said I have still shots and video as well as witness who was in the car with me.
