blood red object videotaped with 2 camera over Phoenix valley

As I pulled into my driveway at 8:19 pm, I noticed a pulsing blood red colored object hanging in the eastern sky. I remembered reading about these red UFOs recently on this website a couple of days ago. I wondered if this was one of them so I ran thru the house and took a spotting scope into the backyard to observe it. I couldn't make out any further details with the scope other than a pulsing red light. Next I ran in and grabbed a Hi-8 videocamera and a tripod. I went outside to set up the gear. I taped the object on the tripod, then proceeded to place numerous calls around the Phoenix valley to other skywatchers. On the third call Jeff Willes answered and immediately gathered his videocamera with my 5X telephoto lenses I loaned him. He also videotaped the blood red object as I did with a tripod. We'll probably post stills or video on our website in a day or so. Until then we'll be keeping the Phoenix valley under watch during the 7-9 pm time period for a while. Tom King
