Location: Brook Park, OH
|Reddish star looking object moving across sky, stopped overhead, changed directions and until it disappeared.
I was lying on my back staring at the sky, awaiting the local fireworks show. I observed what appeared to be a bright star or planet in the sky. It had a reddish hue and was about 45 degrees from the southern horizon.
It caught my eye because it appeared to be moving, very slowly, almost imperceptible at first. The object was moving in a northerly direction until it was almost straight above me.
It stopped for a few seconds and began moving again in a different direction, heading east until it was out of sight.
Again, it appeared to be a bright star only it was moving.
My wife and friend said it must be a plane. No way. Although the object moved at about the same speed as a plane flying very high would, it stopped and changed directions. Also, there were no blinking lights or red/white colors you typically would see in a plane.
