Location: Taylorsville, UT
Shape: Circle
Duration:10 minutes
Got home late 11:30 pm, went out back for a smoke, when I noticed a bright pure red light hovering low south east sky! It hovered there for a minute or two before it started moving. Its first move was straight up and stopped mid sky and starter to pulse. At first I thought it was a drone someone was flying in a park! That changed in a blink of an eye! The light started to dance around. It moved rapidly to the mid sky directly south and stoped again, and then started moving up and down like a yoyo 5 times then stoped and started blinking.

At this point I actually for a scared feeling, I felt it knew I was watching it? The light then started to go crazy pulling amazing aerodynamic moved? Befoe moving rapidly to the west sky below the tree line out of my sight! What's weird is that my house is right under the flight path of passenger airplanes conning in for landing at the slc air port? This light was dancing around right in the path! But notice know planes flew ov! er during or after I viewed the light. I stayed up till 1:00am never saw the light but noticed there were no planes flying over my house.

I'm still shook up for some reason..if that was a drone, I want one asap wow!!!
