October 11, 2012 Dear UFO Center: I think I just saw a UFO.

While outside facing east at approximately 10:15 pm CST, I saw a small, circular red object slightly surrounded by a yellow light, flying westbound. While watching, this object turned southbound in an arc, slowed dramatically, then flew at a higher rate of speed southbound until out of my sight.

I was standing on my small back porch with my back against the back door. The back door, as well as the back of my house, is white sided. There is a maple tree to my immediate south. The tree is approximately two-third bereft of its leaves. The remaining leaves on the tree are golden in color.

This did not look like a private plane, kite, or laser light.

It was red in color, circular in shape with a yellow haze surrounding it.

It flew southbound until I could see it no more.

If you call me from an 800-type telephone number, I do not answer anything I cannot identify.
