strange brightwhite w/red luminous " ufo " vanished right before me and leave's the strangest smoke ....... I've ever seen .

It was a very clear and cold January latenight . When i'd stepped out to close my gate someone had left open . And just as i was about to go back inside . I'd noticed a very bright white light low in the western night sky . At first , I'd thought it was just a jet . But with my mini binocular i just happen to have in the pocket of my fleece pullover . I soon seen , it was no jet plane . This craft was circular in shape . Perhaps 30-40 ft. around with a Garnet Red luminous ring from top to bottom around the craft . It looked to be part of the craft which was heading my way . Just then i'd called out to a friend of my . Who was inside my house to come check this out . As he stepped out to see what was up , I just handed him my mini binocular's and said , " check it out " . We both got a good close look at the craft heading from west to east . As we stood watching ...... the craft began to slow then stopped . A plume of smoke cloa! ked the craft ...... perhaps , so was not too see it ? Once the craft began to moving eastward for a moment , then stopped again . Once again it cloaked itself w/ a plume of smoke . Both time's the plume of smoke was the same shape as the craft itself . As we stood passing the binoculars back and forth trying to determine just what is we're looking at . The craft began to move ( actually float ) passing right thru the plume of smoke that cloaked east bound . It didn't get far ...... before it made a sharp righthand . Still floating and now heading south ........ Vanished . And was gone , only the star's in the clear cold nightsky were visible . Where the craft had just been . But the strangest thing other the craft itself . Was those 2-plume's of what I thought to be smoke . They both began stretching out first flat and then apart . To the point of a fine Cat Whisker . I can't quite recall ever seeing smoke as I know it . Act in this manner .....! .. I know what is wasn't that cold January night ...... I sa! w . Per haps those of you who take from my UFO Report and other's . Can come up with ....... Just what it was , I saw .

Good Luck !
