Shape: Circle
Duration: 1 - 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, Animals reacted to the event
We saw an object with a ring of red outer circle, yellow inner moving in a straight line from SSE to NNE.

Whilst watching fireworks on New Years eve / morning we suddenly saw an object moving in a totally different direction. Very large red circle with yellow center. It did not move in the way fireworks do (i.e. it was not up and down) and it did not move or look like a plane ( Planes to and from Houston IAH airport move in different directions and much slower. This was quite fast, moved in a downward trajectory but not near any airport. Both my husband and I independently saw it and asked 'What is that?' Definitely not a firework, plane, bird or anything we have seen before. Not normal.
