Location: Mesa, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration:45 seconds
Red, spherical light slowly and irregularly flashing, no sound.

I was leaving the hospital from visiting a relative when I looked up to the sky because something caught my attention as I walked to my car. I noticed a red spherical light traveling slowly across the sky right over me.

As I watched, I noted that it traveled rather slowly and blinked periodically, slow blinking. I looked for other lights as my first thought was that it had to be a helicopter, but no other lights could be seen...then I realized it absolutely couldn't be a helicopter anyway because it made absolutely no sound whatsoever.

It got to about halfway across the sky and directly overhead when it paused for about 3 seconds, then began to travel, at the same slow speed, back to the north, in the opposite direction from how it was traveling prior to stopping for a moment. I watched it until it faded from my view.

No other appearances were made by this light that I noticed before I got in my car and drive home.
