Glowing red saucer shaped object in the winter sky.

It was the winter I turned 11 years old. I am 40 years old now.

My Dad had just left 10 minutes before hand for work at the sawmill. My Mom, sister, brother and I were out riding our olympic snowmobile in the field near our house. Everyone decided to go inside and I thought I would go for one more round on the field.

I turned around in the yard and headed back down into the field when I saw, above the trees and back a ways (i really couldn't say how far..like maybe 500 yards or so) at the far end of our field, a bright glowing , all red craft of some kind. It's shape was saucer like but it also flared out on each side like curved protrusions. I was absolutly flabberghasted...couldn't beleive my eyes. (I was interested in ufo's even back then and used to take books out of the library on them quite often)

It was stationary in the sky and I can't say if there was sound because of the ski-doo engine. This object was all the same brightly glowing red colorthroughout....no other lights or changes in hue...all the same. Of course it scared me instantly cause I thought it might come after me....so I turned that snowmobile around as fast as i could, went back up to the house, jumped off her and removed the key before she even quit moving I think, ran into the house, jumped up onto the kitchen cupboard to see if i could see it again through the window, but it was gone. If it had still been there, I would have deffinately been able to see it from that vantage point.

That experience has run through my mind over and over ever since.
