Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Pulsing red light, changes colors & altitude.

On the night of July 8, 2017, my wife called my attention to a red ball of light approximately 20 miles away, to the West.

The light was bright red and pulsing bright & dim. It hovered, then rapidly ascended straight up. On the way up, it changed color from red, to blue, to pale yellow, orange, then back to red, when it stopped.

It hovered a few moments, then remained red and slowly descended, below the horizon.

The entire event lasted about one minute.

The light was incredibly bright, for as far away as it was.
