Location: New York City (Brooklyn), NY
Shape: Circle
Duration: 12 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
Unexplained red and white light, like a star, visible for 10 seconds then fades out very quickly

I saw a bright light, like a star, in the North East sky. It was 45 degrees above the horizon, maybe less, it was red and white. It seemed to pulse. I waited for it to move. I thought it might be a plane but there were no flashing lights. It was just red and white. I compared it to the stars overhead and they were not as bright, but similar in size.

Then as I was watching it, it faded to black, very quickly but it seemed to be a visible fade. I waited to see if it was a cloud passing over but it did not seem to be a cloud. It did not come back. I would have thought it was a satellite, but it was not moving and I thought it was too late in the evening to see a satellite that seemed very close.
