Duration:15 minutes
Red star-like object in the northeast sky.

The object appeared in the northeastern sky it was a bright red light. It was approximately the size of the planet Venus. It was very bright for minutes at a time and then dim itself to a point where it was no longer visable and just as fast as it dimmed it would brighten. I would describe it as a flickering. At the time of one the flickers, myself and another witness observed the the lights in our backyard dim in sequence with the flickering light in the sky. At the same time my brother who was inside the house told us his T.V. and cable box had shut off. The object moved very slowly towards the north. It moved so slow we hadn't realized it had moved until we all were looking at the object at a different point in the sky. The object finally disappeared from our site after about 15 minutes. It began to dim again and slowly faded from view.
