Bright red,Beautiful. Thought it was an atmospheric condition veiw of possibly the planet of Mars, but it was pulsating and something just felt different. I then veiwed it with my high powered binoculars and again it was strange. My partner and I veiwed it for about 3 minutes just stationary and I was thinking how much fun it would be if I had a high powered telescope and then I started to see it move south east, this is when I knew I was seeing something incredible ! It was now a moving object. It continued to move southeast in a straight line and faded out. I'm quite greatful to witness such a sighting, I hope others saw it this evening. I'm a very well known professional artist and can't wait to incorporate this into my work, and I must say my mind is open even more!

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and found him to be a very sober-minded, believable individual. He described the event in very objective, unambiguous terms. We would welcome other reports from anyone else who might have witnessed the event. PD))
