Posted: 8/12/2008
Location: Calgary (Canada), AB
Shape: Circle
Duration: 10 mins?
Characteristics: The object changed color
It was round and red and would emit fire like flares and travelled slowly but surely.

I was outside helping my husband build a deck from the kitchen back door when I looked up to the sky and watched some seagulls flying about, they were quite high up into the sky and as I thought to myself that they were quite high up and why, when I suddenly saw a round and red object slowly making it's way northeast. My husband could not see it but as I watched it and told him about it, it seemed to light up with fire just like a balloon and basket save there wasn't a basket and it would have been far too high for one. It was red then firey then red but it kept traveling at the same velocity. I didn't watch it until I could no longer see it but later that evening, a few hours after, I saw it again and this time it criscrossed itself going from the south to the north..... very interesting!! Still as slow but sure making it's way somewhere. I've never seen anything like it. It wasn't a weather balloon because we both have seen one twice crossing our yard and it was quite low so that we were able to see exactly what that was! What do you think it was? Thank you so much!
