Reported: 8/18/2001 21:29
Posted: 8/20/2001
Location: Oklahoma City, OK
Shape: Oval
Duration:10 seconds
Fast moving pastel red orange oval object darts across Oklahoma sky.

The object was seen in the western sky and was moving to the east at a high rate of speed. It was in the shape of an oval and was a pastel red orange color. It did not have any lights on it such as our planes have. It was the solid pastel red orange color. It disappeared into the night sky. I watched it for as far as I could see it in total amazement. I have always been a nonbeliever of such things. I Believe Now!

The only thing that it resembled in the movement would be the way a search light moves. This was not a search light because of the color. I had been outside all evening and had not seen a search light earlier. The object was going toward Oklahoma City the last I was able to see it.
