|Bright light come over horizon, turn and disappear.
Friday, July 13, 2012 Noticed the neighbor’s horse started making noise while my husband & I were having dinner on our deck. Caught out of the corner of my eye a bright object coming over the horizon (I was facing south). It was bright orange with a red spot behind it. Very large and bright, moving slow, rising at a 30 degree angle or so. Seemed to stop and then turn toward us, which is toward the left (eastwardly) then started heading back toward the horizon. Once it started turning the light started dimming quickly, and completely went out before reaching the horizon. The lights were solid, no flashing and the red disappeared light disappeared at the turning point. This lasted for about 1 minute. Once lights disappeared the neighbor’s horse went silent. The sky was clear and hadn’t noticed any stars yet. Probably about 9:30pm. The horizon is not far from us, about two miles.
We sit out quite often and watch the sky. Watched many planes at night, but none like this before.
