Location: Talent, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:5-8 seconds
Bright white light moving up & away rapidly to the SE, near the star Arcturus, becoming smaller as it traveled East, turned red & gone.

On this relatively clear evening I viewed a steady bright light, like the evening 'star' Venus, about the size of Venus, white in color, in the Eastern sky to the right and below the star Arcturus, It was noticibly brighter than any other stars in the sky, and appeared to be at a great distance from me. It was moving rapidly to the East and upward. I used the star Arcturs to judge the object's movement up and away from me.

As it moved, the light grew smaller and smaller and just before disappearing appeared to change to a red color. There was no sound associated with it.
