Red circular object surrounded by yellow glow flying w/no sound quickly coming out of east turning southboundOctober 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.
