|Strange deep red light very slowly tracing over rural St charles, IL
About two months ago, my husband and daughter were out on a bike ride, they called me on my cell phone to tell me that a "strange red light" was hovering in the western sky. I went out and observed this stationary red light in the western sky. i watched it for about 5 minutes, it very slowly flashed but did not move. Then it shot straight up into the heavy cloud cover and was gone.
Then on Oct 5th I was out on my back deck.. about 11pm, I noticed again a "red light" I called for both my daughter and her friend to come out and see it. All three of us watched this light over the course of twenty minutes. At one point it dropped something out of it, looked like sparks, this seemed to fall about a mile west of my house. The light was identical to the earlier observation. The red light very slowly flashed off and on for about twenty minutes. It very slowly scroosed the sky from west to east as we watched. I went in to the house to get a flashlight and blinked the flashlight off and on in a pattern, it seemed to respond the pattern back to us. Then it sharply went up.. till it was barely seen, then came back down and traced off to the east, where we no longer could see it. We took a digital picture of the object, it is not very clear, but distinctly shows the object.
