Mayrhofen, Tirol (Austria)

Shape: Circle | Duration: 00:01:00

My brother and I arrived at Mayrhofen, Austria on 01/17/09 for our skiing holiday. I went outside at 21:43 to have a cigarette on the balcony. It was a very clear night and I was looking at the reflection of the light on the snowy mountains. I saw a red light appear from behind a nearby mountain and continued to rise into the sky, slowly. The object moved very slight to to the left and right but not very much. I did not know what the object was, it was definately not an aircraft, it had no lights and had no propulsion/exchaust trails.I called my brother out to see, he told me to get the camera. I took a short video but this was bad quality. I took a photograph and when zoomed by 200% was a red circle, with an outer bright border and a bright central dot.The object moved slowly upwards and then gained speed quickly, again going outwards and reducing in visibility. The object then disappeared, in that it had gained extreme speed as opposed to disappearing.My brother and I were convinced that this object was nothing that we had seen previously or had seen on any unbelievable UFO You Tube video. This led to speculation and eventually reporting on this website.Photograph to be uploaded...
