UFO over Blue Mosque and Theodosius Obelisks, Istanbul, Turkey

I was walking next to the Obelisk (there are three with in meters of each other there and the Mosque is where you see all the sea gulls flying) and I noticed a red ball way up in the sky. I watched it for a minute.

It was moving erratic so I pulled out my camera to try and catch it on video. It slowed down and then disappeared. It was completely silent.

I heard a jet coming up behind me, and he passed right by where it disappeared, but sorry I stopped filming before that.

((NUFORC Note: Video, at the link provided below, indicates a single light, possibly orange, which appears to be hovering in a clear nighttime sky. We do not know what the object was.
