|Red shooting star changed directions and went back into space.
My girlfriend and I were sitting on the balcony of our hotel in Cancun. I was looking out over the ocean and enjoying the stars. It was a very clear night. I saw what I thought was a shooting star. It was red and moving very rapidly. The only thing that was odd was that it was red (every shooting star I have seen was green or white). As it neared the horizon, the trajectory changed to a horizontal movement from the right to the left. After a second or less it suddenly doubled back at aproxamitly 15 degrees and went back out into space at a speed 10x what it was going when it came in to view. We both had goosebumps for hours! It was a amazing experience. I am no longer a skeptic.
