Shape: Other
Duration: 45 min
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
witnessed a large object and an intense red light that illumiated the object.

While camping in the Worthington St. Forest, myself and my friend witnessed a large object and an intense red light that appeared behind this object that illumiated the object. The condictions were somewhat foggy so when my friend woke up and stated that she thought she saw a shooting star I was skeptical, but then we both saw 3 small white lights just above the horizon. We were camping on a rise above the Delaware River with the tent fly open and were looking almost directly across at the light. Then a bright red glow started to shine that was almost like a sun rise and we saw the Black solid body with a flat top, concave sides and a srtight botton that was longer than the top. The red glow clearly outlined this large sturture. The glow plused and dimmed so that the object was lost in the haze. Then the light returned and we were able to again see the object. This happened three times over the next approx. 45 mins. There was no sound or noise that we could hear. The object was stationary and did not move. After the third time that the red light shown and dimmed we did not see it again. In the morning we est. that this object was drictly over the River about 1000 ft from our tent and no more than 50-100 ft up.
