Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Red light traveling opposite course to ISS.

I went out to watch the ISS fly over last night. It was moving from NW to SE. I continued to watch till it was almost lost in the light pollution of Metro Louisville, KY. Just as about to turn around and go inside, I noticed a faint red point source of light traveling on a reciprocal course to ISS and moving at same apparent speed.

At first I thought it was an airplane with starboard nav light out, but as it travelled overhead I never heard any engine noise. I continued to watch it till I lost it from sight behind some large trees.

I consider myself a good observer, as I was in Air Force in Vietnam and later got my BS and MS in Physics. I have never seen anything like this before.
