Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Unexplained light to the north that didn't appear to be an aircraft that moved west and then north at a decent rate of speed.

About 22:00 I had looked north and saw a light that looked more red in color. I didn't see any flashing lights that you would see on an aircraft. I went in and got my wife. By that time it had moved some distance to the west. It then appeared more orange like and I thought maybe it was a hot air balloon. But then it picked up speed and headed north and started to fade in and out then eventually disappeared. It clearly wasn't slow moving and was not a hot air or similar craft. It was not a meteor since it changed direction. The acceleration didn't appear to be like anything I have seen before It was quite some distance away. I could only say it was a light. I can't be any more descriptive. I am a logical person and at this time, I can't come up with anything to call it other than a UFO.
