The craft came from the south past me at a low aircraft height silently...no strobes or navigation lights and completely silent, i got a good clear view of it for at least 10 -15 seconds...it went past a tall tree and slightly into the distance where it turned east and carried on into the distance. it carried on for about 2 mins where it was too far away to see.. no strobes, flashing, noise or change of speed..which was slowish...much slower that a commercial jet whose flightpath is east to west, perhaps as fast as a slow helicopter, hard to describe but had a heavy halo of red light around it that was bulbous at the front..like a light in mist...with a brighter central core...it definitely had something like a red navigation light on a aircraft but much bigger and not completely round this light was still and did not blink...the 'halo' was thick and i cud see there was a light emitting it but it was definitely eggish shaped with wispy but a defined edge...there was no mist for sure cus i was looking at the moon and it was a crisp clear evening.. there was definitely absolutely no sound..nothing..definitely no flashing lights..no other colour...just red and no change in speed which was slowish...i got a really good look at it for a amount of time and i couldnt tell what it was, there was other air traffic..planes etc.. im on a flightpath so all planes go the same way..the opposite way.....the was a very light breeze and it was mild with a gathering nip in the air.
