Shape: Light
Duration: minute
One reddish light splits into two smaller lights of same color & intensity, then they travel in different directions.

I came home about 10 pm. It was a clear night. I went to our roadside mailbox to check for mail. I looked up and saw a slow moving reddish light moving west to east in the southern sky. As I tracked the light visually, it all of a sudden split into two smaller lights of the same color and intensity. No tails were noted. These two smaller lights then travelled in different directions. I am a registered nurse.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. One of three reports from same source, who appears to us to be a credible witness. PD))
