Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright golden reddish light moving in multiple directions - second sighting.

My husband had told me about seeing something like this about a week prior, but within a different direction than last night. However, the specs were the same.

I was in the house when he called me to hurry and come outside, that "thing" was in the sky like he saw before, but this time to the south (last time was east). When I got outside, I observed a reddish-orange bright light that appeared to be descending but steady pace. After only a few minutes, it stopped moving all together.

After only a few seconds, it began to move horizontally to the east and then stopped again. It appeared to hover while moving a tight circular pattern in each place it stopped. It would descend and move horizontally west and back east after each "stop". It even made a quick movement back UP at one point.

I told my husband to flash his flashlight, but surprisingly he refused (he has interest in these types of things, watches a lot of documentaries).

Right before it "disappeared" it began moving in what appeared to be a horizontal pattern away from us, so it either disappeared or moved out of sight because the light slowly dimmed during this process. I went back in the house to get my phone to record it, but had the phone focused on the neighbor's light instead of the sky and didn't realize it until it was gone because I was watching the sky, not my phone.

I'll try again of the opportunity presents itself.
