Shape: Circle
Duration:5 minutes
Single reddish circle in the sky that wasn't jet nor satelitte

It's been nearly 2 years since I saw it, but after hearing your show on coast to coast I thought I would share my story. What surprised me was the mention of circle shaped objects that looked red or even like fire balls. I had no idea it was a common description of UFOs. What I saw that night was a circle shape that was reddish orange with a dull glow in the sky towards the east. It almost looked like a large planet glowing low and far in the sky, but then I noticed it was moving slowly. It could not have been an airliner because they have more than one light and usually have one blinking, and it clearly looked like a single large circle of light. I wondered if it might be a satellite, but it was too large to qualify as one. I was stumped. I've never witnessed anything quite like it. I watched it for about five minutes as it slowly drifted away eastwards.
