Walked out front door,then looked to the night sky and saw an object hovering to the north (my right), it might have been at about 1500-2000 feet. my son is a commercial pilot so i watch the sky and he flew over a lot time building so he tells me altitude etc a lot. i first assumed it was a plane from the military or ups which both fly over fairly frequently but it hovered for a minute or two, the bottom turned into a flaming look like afterburners had been turned on. it proceeded around to where it was west of me although it didn’t seem to get a lot further from me. it stopped, hovered again,turned a dull red look, then brightened dramatically like a 1/3 sized moon in size and slightly more intense. then it shrank into a dot and disappeared very quickly. the whole thing only took 1 minute according to my pictures but it seemed much longer and may have been somewhat longer because it may have taken me a little time to take pictures. it was very strange. i don’t mean to muddy the waters but i had another strange (though identifiable) sighting in 2002. i live at least 25 miles from the nearest airport and one day in the spring of 2002 my son was at baseball practice and a medium to large airliner flew over at about 500 foot behind the ballfield. i yelled to the coach and another parent who also saw it. it was close enough that i saw people outlined in the windows. it actually appeared to be no more than 2-300 feet up. we were sure that it was crashing. later a guy i went to school with said it nearly hit a light pole in his yard. this was soon after 9-11. i actually have 1 last sighting that is slightly less exciting but i’ll spare you the details for now. to wrap this up, this last sighting was somewhat profound and was worth taking the time to report.
