Location: Eden Roc/Big Island, HI
Shape: Fireball
Duration: ~5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Red light above the waters of Big Island HI.

On the 4th of July, at about 1030 pm, my father in law and I both witnessed a bright red light above the horizon, over the waters of the big island, near the volcano state park. It move a bit from right to left and soon vanished from our sight. It was not very high in the sky, just above the trees, but our elevation here is about 2,000 feet. So even though it was over the waters, we ruled out a flare of any kind. There is no air traffic around here, and especially around this time. Hope someone else saw it, cause I just cant stop thinking about it.
