I was at work when I stepped outside to do a security check of the building I'm responsible for. A light was seen to the South and was very far away and appeared to look like a red ball of light. At first I assumed it was a plane coming toward my direction. I then realized it was not moving so I watched it for about a minute. During this time I tried to debunk it thinking it was just a star, however there was low cloud cover and I realized it couldn't be a star because it was below the cloud ceiling.

I continued to watch, when all of a sudden, it moved horizontally across the sky towards the West and then it just stopped on a dime. I noticed a plane with blinking lights flying past from West to East and almost immediately the red light zipped towards the plane heading East and again stopped on a dime as if examining the airplane.

This all took about a total of 5 minutes. I then lost visual of the UFO in the treeline.

The UFO was too far away to film with my sma! rtphone, but I had recalled seeing stuff like this before on the internet thinking it was all fake. I know what I saw and am now a believer. Keep watching the sky!
