Red pulsing light over Cherry Valley, NY

On Tuesday, March 18th, 2008, I was walking my dog around the yard at approximately 8:45pm. I looked up in the sky to see the stars and saw a large red pulsing light in the western sky. My immediate thought was, ‘who put that huge tower up today??’.

Realizing the light was too big to be a light on top of a tower, and the fact that we live in a very rural part of NY state and do not have cell towers or otherwise in the area, I continued to watch the light. It did not move. It pulsed brighter, then duller in a continuous rythym.

I went into the house and up to my bedroom window on the second floor to continue to watch it. I called both my son and daughter into the room so they could see it also. We were all mystified as to what it could be. It was continuing to pulse but was not moving in any way.

I went to sleep and when I awoke in the morning to take my dog out again, it was STILL in the same position at 6:30am. After watching it again for a few minutes it was just gone.

I waited to send this report so that I could see if the same thing happened again last night (thereby possibly being some distant tower, knowing it couldn’t be), but there was nothing.

For the life of me, I do not know why I didn’t film it. I have no explanation. That’s not like me.

I asked a neighbor if she’d seen anything and she said she saw a strange light when she was coming out of her barn, but told herself it was a plane, even though she knew it wasn’t moving.
