Characteristics: Lights on object
Low flying, hovering, red pulsating light.
At approximately 2:30am, I had just finished feeding my baby when I realized my cat had not come in yet. I opened the sliding glass door to my upstairs bedroom and went outside to call for him.
I looked up and saw a bright red pulsating/blinking light hovering relatively low.
At first (and possibly still) I believed it was a helicopter. I heard no noise though! It was close enough that I should have heard SOMETHING. My husband is a police officer and was working at the time. I immediately called him to make sure everything was alright, why was there a helicopter hovering in the middle of the night? He knew nothing about it. He did ask me how many glasses of wine I had (zero). He told me he would come to the house and check it out, but never did. After I hung up with him, I woke up my 11 year old son who happens to be on a UFO kick right now. We looked at it together for a few minutes and then went back to bed (both in my bed this time because he was scared).
I got up a little while later to look out the window and it had moved significantly farther away. I looked again a little later after that and it was gone. I have cell phone video of the object. My husband suggested that it was possibly a helicopter doing surevelance, but really? With a glowing red light on? The only light was the red one. No white, no blue, no green.
When the red light pulsates off, it was black.
