Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
A very bright dot of moving red light, then a flash like an explosion far up in the western sky.

Very far up, to the west, as high or higher than an airplane flies, was a very small and very bright red dot of light. It was not flashing but was a steady light, moving very slowly. It disappeared, perhaps behind a cloud.

I waited to to see it come out from behind the wispy cloud but it did not. Instead, in the same general area, there was a flash of light as if something had exploded. It, too, then vanished.
