Location: Colorado Springs, CO
Shape: Light
Duration:15 sec
About 1am i saw a bright red light racing from the front range of Colo northeast and changed angles and dissapeared in 15 sec.

I was working on the roof of the Citadel Mall taring from the hours of 7pm to 7am. Me and a bunch of other pay daily laborers ususally cut out for lunch around 1 am and would head for the 7/11, but this lunch I layed down in a wheel barrel and was just staring at the front range between pikes peak and cheyenne Mt. Living in the springs for some 20 years I've always had an earie feeling of all the tech. lights above norad, but thats when I saw a bright red light racing Northeast. I'd just got out of the Airforce in 92 and this didn't resemble anything I'd ever seen. A few seconds had gone by and this red light was already over the middle of the city when it changed to an angle heading toward blackforest. It had crossed the entire sky in about 15 sec or less, just enough for me to get out of the wheel barrel and watch it dissapear. I know this wasn't a falling star, I know it wasn't a satelite, and I know it wasn't a jet or airplane it made no noise. Of course when I told everyone what I'd saw when we resumed work they didn't believe me!
