|Red/blue orb flying sporadically above Redwood City.
I arrived home late from dinner Wednesday night at 11:30pm. As I took the garbage cans outside, I just happened to look up at the clear sky. To the northwest, close to above the 280 freeway, I saw a blue bright orb. As I saw it, it steadily moved in the opposite flow of airplanes circling around to land at SFO.
It then appeared to move vertically down, hover, then vertically back up. The blue light then turned bright red. It was bright enough to create a halo or orb around the object.
The now red light ascended and moved horizontally across the sky. Definitely not an airplane or heli. I also thought drone, but way to big and fast unless it was a huge commercial drone. Drones don't also make them self visible as bright blue/red lights. The red light moved all directions in the sky very rapidly.
After about 5 minutes of tracking it across the sky. It seemed to go straight down again and eventually went behind the Canada College parking lot bright lights we can see from our place.
I'm excited in what I saw and took some video. Never seen anything like this before. I always look up at night and finally caught something I couldn't identity. I only hope others saw it as well.
