Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Bright red firey light moving silently across the sky, then went up and dissapeared.

Myself and two other people were working on a lawn tractor in a nice suburban neighborhood trying to get it started. We are in the age range of late teen to early 20's. We do not drink. I had already gotten dark. My one friend said, “woa, look at that!”. In the west/northwest sky we saw a very bright red light. It came up over the houses, and then began to silently hover.

We thought it was a parachute flare because it looked fairly low, however I know for a fact that most parachute flares only stay lit for 40 seconds. It had that bright red fiery glow flares have! They also make noise when being fired off when you’re at a close distance. This stayed lit for around 5 minutes. It began to fade, but never came down. In fact I believe it faded because it was going up! Eventually it looked like it went up into the clouds. It then disappeared.

Well, it was very interesting. That alone made us excited. Then after around 10 minutes later, the same light came back down briefly! It hovered again for maybe a minute, then went back up again and disappeared. Nobody else saw it from what I know. I don’t understand how somebody else could not have seen it! It was too amazing to be ignored. This is the second time I have seen this type of ufo in my town. The first was about two years ago. We are close to several military bases including Site R, and Camp David if that has anything to do with it.

I take my video camera with me wherever I go...of coarse on this night I decided to leave it home! Never again will I make this mistake.
