|Red glowing object flew in south-east direction 22;30 EDT - disappeared after approx two minutes
One June 21st, 2015 at approximately 22:30 EDT, I went outside to set up my camera to experiment photographing the planets Jupiter and Venus since they were very bright near the crescent moon.
As I was positioning the camera and tripod to point toward the moon and two planets, I noticed a bright red object moving from north-west to south-east. This would be parallel to Main Street. There was no sound and the light did not appear to vary in intensity. There were no flashing lights that I could see, just a constant red glow.
I turned the tripod to point the camera so I could try to get a photo of the object. It was dark as I had switched off my outside lights and that caused some difficulty in arranging the camera and tripod. Just as I got the camera pointed in the right direction, the object appeared to vanish into thin air. It did not accelerate, change direction of in any other way indicate it would be gone. It just vanished. Unfortunately, I did not get a photograph.
Total elapsed time was about two to three minutes There were aircraft passing by at higher altitudes and in different directions and I could see their flashing lights. This object was not like any airplane I’d ever seen.
I am a sixty-four year old male who enjoys accounting as a career along with computers and photography as hobbies. I do not drink alcohol other than the occasional bottle of beer or glass of wine with a friend about once a year. I do not take any recreational drugs and I do not smoke, anything. I am in good health both mentally and physically. I am near sighted and my eyeglasses give me excellent distance vision.
