Location: Williamsfield, OH
Shape: Sphere
Duration:40 minutes
I saw a red orb in the sky traveling in a forward then backward arcing motion then disappeared.

I was sitting in my car, not moving, engine not running, pointing almost due South in my driveway, enjoying the clear sky, and almost full moon at 11:07 p.m., on Friday, May 1, 2015.
At this moment, I observed a bright red light rising from my South West, arcing up and to the East, peaking at approximately about 40 feet above the peak of my barn, but obviously well beyond (to the South), maybe 30 or more miles.

It then appeared to be brilliant red, as bright as the Moon maybe at about 10 degrees space between the Moon and the “orb” then began its decent in the arc to the South East, then disappeared behind some clouds. About 10 minutes later, it reappeared and retraced its arc almost exactly and disappeared at its starting point behind my trees in the South West. The entire sighting lasted until about 11:50p.m.

This “orb” emitted no sound that I could hear, nor do anything but move steadily through the sky. There was no other movement like blinking, changing colors, nor anything going in or out of the object. I saw no wings or pilots or anything that would suggest propulsion of any kind.
