Reported: 11/26/2011 9:37:44 PM 21:37
Location: San Francisco, CA
Duration: ~5 to 10 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
|Yellow aura around bright red center low in sky and lossing the aura to then grow faint and rise up in the sky to vanish completly.
Single Cherry-red glowing center, fairly large for distance of object, not like a planes blinking red lights. Surrounded by a yellow-orange glow.
I'm on an outdoor deck looking East in San Francisco in the Marina District.
It came slowly through airspace, from NE to SW, pretty low in sky from my stand point.
Went behind building for a few seconds still coming toward my general direction, and reappeared as I moved to corner of deck to meet it, sight wise, and watched the yellow glow disappear and the red center part get smaller - it seemed to now be going up into the sky and quickly vanished. I looked hard for a remnant of a faint light but there was nothing.
I thought maybe behind a cloud but then realized I could see many and vast stars all in the area it vanished in - so this would rule out cloud cover.
Very odd sighting.
In summary; it seemed to be fairly low in the sky moving generally toward me. One glowing cherry-red center and an orange-yellow halo which diminished over time to vanish all together, and then the red center grew faint quickly and it vanished from all sight completely; seemingly moving in an upward flight into the atmosphere. No trace of any light could be seen, I could see stars. But nothing at all.
