Location: Portland, OR
Shape: Teardrop
Duration:1+ hr
Firey light, orb flashing red, retro rocket flying backwards.

I was looking straight up looking for meteors. as I looked down towards the southern horizon I saw a wood fire colored light approaching at a low altitude and slow speed. it then turned at a right angle to the west and changed to a red object in the shape of a teardrop or like a afterburner flying backwards and red, quickly changing size to a flashing speck, then vanished. Reappeared seconds later, appearing to be a great distance away. faint blinking / changing to solid white/erratic. moving up then down, movement almost fluid, like a bag in the wind.

no possible way man made not a toy, not humanly technologically possible.
