Observed unusual bright, red/orange light hovering for at least 15 minutes, 02/05/2009, 9:45pm-10pm, Texas Hill CountryI had been away from home and when I returned, was walking our dogs down the street, towards the end of the cul-de-sac. The time was between 9:45pm and 10:00pm. We live in a very rural, country setting. I happened to look towards the West and noticed a very distinct, bright, orange/red light hovering in the sky, just above a mountain ridge. We live in the Texas Hill Country between Austin and San Antonio. I knew it wasn't a star, too big, not the right color and too low in the sky. I knew it wasn't a plane, planes don't hover like this. I knew it wasn't a helicopter, they don't hover for that length of time. A few planes did fly in the vicinity of this object during the 15 minutes I stood and observed this thing. Surely, the pilots of these planes saw what I saw. The distance between this object and myself was approximatelty 2-3 miles. My dogs became very impatient with me just standing there and staring at this thing. I know I stood there at least 15 minutes. I kept thinking - "If I can see this, can they see me?" I was so scared as I had my left my 10 year old son alone in the house and my husband was out of town. I kept thinking, I can't be 'snatched up' as there won't be anyone to take care of our son. Finally, this very bright orange/red light slowly sank below the ridge to where I couldn't see it anymore. When my husband returned the next night, Friday night, I finally was able to get him outside and walked him down the street to where I was when I saw this thing and told him the whole story. I was and still am so scared about what I saw. It was NOT normal. Thanks for letting me share. I haven't known where to go with this information and finally heard on a late night radio talk show with George Norie about this website.((NUFORC Note: Sighting of Venus?? PD))
