I went out to my cottage to stargaze with my telescope. i have been an avid amateur astronomer for some time and know the sky in the area very well, especially during the summer, wherein i do most of my stargazing. looking out towards the horizon i see clouds gathering and beginning to shroud the stars, but a bright red/orange light remained in front of the clouds, not being swept over by them. this is not the first time i have seen something strange from my cottage view, but certainly the first in several years. i figured the object was a drone but kept watching it. eventually it flickered and faded away. i kept staring into the distance and within two minutes it returned in the same place at the same angle. more cloud coverage this time but it remained in full. within another two minutes of staring at it, it faded away. i stayed looking for another 5 minutes but it did not return.
