Small red globes going to and from a satellite to the earth. Satellite has since has disappeared.

About 3:00AM I couldn’t sleep and was looking out the window. I noticed a distant bright star in the sky I assumed was a satellite. Suddenly I could see about a dozen small red globes of light appear to leave the satellite and head toward the earth. It looked like something from a video game. This startled me so my attention was fixed on the object. As I watched I observed multiple red globes of light going to and from the satellite toward the earth and back.

Watching this phenomenon for period of a couple of hours I confirmed this was indeed a stationary object and therefore a satellite. In spite of the red globes I was tired and dismissed the object and went to sleep.

The next night it appeared again and the same red globes went to and from the object as before. I woke my wife up to make sure I wasn’t crazy and she watched the red globes going to and from the object toward the earth. We were both amazed.

On the third night I watched this object again and the red globes traveling to and fro. On the forth night the object was gone and never reappeared. That’s when I wasn’t so sure what I observed was ordinary because stationary satellites always remain in the same place.

The direction was in the North Eastern sky. It could be a military experiment or some other perfectly explainable occurrence. I don’t know what I observed so I felt it was worth reporting to your database.

I did roll video but nothing appeared likely because my camera was a very old model and had no night capability. I still have the 8mm tape of the attempt somewhere in my drawer.

I am an extremely skeptical person but this experience certainly has provoked some second thoughts.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
