Shape: Light
Duration:6-7 minutes
Cherry red light, hovering in NW over Fireworks display, then turning 90 degrees and shooting SE at a rapid speed!

While watching a local fireworks display originating from a nearby church over the lake behind my house, I observed an object with a flashing, cherry red light, at a very high altitude in the north western area of the sky. It was hovering in one place, as if observing the fireworks below.

The red light flashing object remained hovering in one place for 3 or 4 minutes, then it made a 90 degree turn and quickly streaked to the southeastern area of the sky and disappeared in a southerly direction as if following the inter-state highway south, in the direction of northern Kentucky.

I looked on the Internet to find out what kind of aircraft would have a cherry red, flashing light, but I did not find any helpful information. There were no other colors of light being emitted from the object, I watched until it was out of sight looking for the usual colored lights, but none were ever visible, just the one flashing red light.

I have never seen an aircraft move with such speed or with such abrupt 90 degree turns as this object presented.
