Duration:5-8 minutes
Observed a red light in the sky dodge out of the way of a commercial jet.

I was outside in my back yard around 8:00 pm. It was at dusk and the sun was almost fully set. I noticed a red light high up in the sky a ways from my home. It then moved towards the direction of my house. It seemed to float or hover a little then move slowly, then hover, then move again towards my house. The light I saw was red, and didn't flash.

At first I thought it was a helicopter, but it made no noise and the light did not flash like a helicopter would. I did see the light slowly change from red to a blueish-green color and then back to red again. I then saw that a commercial jet was heading right for the light.

The light hovered for a while until it almost looked as if the jet and the light were going to crash, and the light moved out of the way of the jet. The light then moved further away from my home until it lowered and went behind a line of trees and out of sight.
