|Red circular object changes colour and speeds up and changes direction slightly.
We were traveling South on McGregor Street ( main thorougfare ) in the North end of the city when we noticed what appeared to be a red light traveling at a 45 degree angle from the East moving swiftly SSE. At first sight we thought it was perhaps a meterorite however it changed colour from red to white and became more brilliant just after changing colour. As the brilliance intensified it also increased it's speed significantly to twice the speed it had been originally moving and also changed direction slightly by perhaps one or two degrees. At the same time there was a plane in the sky moving from the west towards the east and this object seemed to pass under it rapidly. The temperature outside was approximately minus 12C and the sky was clear as we could see a few stars.
