My wife and I witnessed a large, extremely bright, spheroid object that appeared to be hanging in the air over San Francisco for a very long time. We watched the object for around an hour (at 4:30 am) and then went back to bed. It seemed to wobble, change shape and it definitely changed its brightness. With the binoculars it went from a narrow light too a round light, changed intensity and generally pulsed with a red hue around it. It is the brightest thing that I've ever seen in the night sky. We really couldn't tell how high it was. We were situated in the Richmond District of SF looking East towards Oakland and Berkeley. It could have been over the bay or over SF or even further East. However, it did not appear to be outside of the Earth's atmosphere.Did anyone else see an anomoly in the SF night sky that morning?
