Location: Santa Ana, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Red light viewed in Orange County.

Was walking outside of my grandparent's house (I live next door to my grandparents) and I heard a siren. I quickly looked around to see if anything was happening nearby. I looked up at the sky and saw a bright, red light which seemed to be traveling upward.

At first I thought it was some sort of flare, but the light quickly became brighter and traveled in my direction. I quickly went to get my grandmother to show her the UFO. She briskly walked outside and looked at where I pointed, and she stood there staring with intense curiosity at the object.

At this point, the object seemed to be almost directly above us, but it seemed to be going higher and higher.

Then, wanting even more witnesses, I ran to my house to get my mother. I excitedly told her there was a UFO outside, and she followed me back outside. The object was now farther away, more towards the south.

My mother ran inside to get a pair of binoculars, but by the time she returned, the object had almost completely faded away.

This all happened throughout the course of approximately three minutes.
