Location: Honolulu, HI
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 5 minutes
I thought it was a star as it flickered between white and red.

My husband and I were on our way to Phoenix from Honolulu. As our plane leveled off I looked outside of my window and saw what I believed at first to be a bright star, possibly Mars as it would flicker between white and red. About two minutes passed and I looked outside the window again and saw the same star at the same distance as i had seen it prior. I put my glasses on to see if instead of a star it could be another plane also flying in the same direction as it seemed to be keeping the same pace with our plane. At that time the pilot had put on the seat belt light. I didn't know why as there was no turbulence at this time. i couldn't quite make out whether it was another plane or a star. it wasn't above or below but ahead and to the left of the plane and eye level. a few more minutes passed and suddenly the object seemed to make a sharp right as though it was about to fly in front of our plane. At first i thought that maybe the plane had veered left that would account for this shape to seem as though it was going to the right, but i had been on airplanes numerous times to know how it feels when a plane veers left or right. Maybe it's nothing but if someone else saw this i would appreciate it if they would report it.
