|Bright RED light spotted in Southern sky traveling East
While outside smoking my cigarette I noticed an extremely bright RED light in the Southern sky. It was a bright steady glow..not moving, not blinking. I watched it for a minute or so wondering what it was. I figured it strange enough to get two witnesses from inside the house to come out and check it out with me. They both spotted it and we watched as it slowly began to drift East in the sky. It was approx. 3 times larger than Jupiter. One witness grabbed the telescope and tried to get it into view to no avail. While we were watching it we noticed it slowly looked as if it were fading into a pinpoint, then it would come back big and bright again. Finally after a few more minutes it just disappeared by fading into a pinpoint and then it was just gone. It seemed like it had traveled away from us the way it faded away. A few months earlier, one of the witnesses had spotted the exact same bright red light in the Western sky.
