|Bright red-orange object that looked like a star.
I came outside and saw a bright red light that looked like the north star except for color. My first instinct was to go and get my camera. But instead I just stood and watched it thinking maybe itís just a plane, because it was moving slowly across the sky. I thought that planes all have flashing lights and all I saw was this magnificent bright red light that appeared to be slightly orange in color like maybe it had a white light in the middle.
It moved from probably south to north and all of a sudden it just dimmed and went out. I thought it may have went behind clouds. I looked hard into the sky and all I could see was stars and even a jet with its flashing lights at a very high altitude.
What I saw appeared to be at a low to medium altitude and not obscured by any tree line. So I had a clear view of it until it just disappeared. I hate that I didnít get my camera.
Itís the first time in my 50 + years that I have ever witnessed such a sight. I guess thatís what I get for being skeptical and thinking it has to be a plane.
