|Red Orb slowly maneuvers and changes color, shape, and direction in the Southwest San Diego Sky.
At first I noticed a red orb hanging in the southwest sky. I thought it was venus at first, but it was a bright red and it was moving. It seemed so far away, yet close at the same time. The orb moved downwards in a line perpendicular to the horizon, and it seemed to get brighter as it fell closer.
At first it moved in a linear fashion, so I thought it was a shooting star or that Halloween asteroid, but it was moving too slowly and seemed too close to be a celestial object.
After about a minute watching the red orb, it changed color to a pale grey and was difficult to see in the night sky. The shape of the orb seemed more disk like at this point and it changed direction from south to west - a maneuver that both my friend and I had not seen any planes or helicopters do. The dim, grey disk moved slowly and we thought we had lost sight of it, but it was distinct and clearly not something we were used to seeing move in the night sky. It changed direction from west to south again, but appeared to move away from us instead of closer as it had when it was bright red... and then we lost sight of it.
