Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
A ball of red light, slightly rippled.

We looked up and saw a bright light in the sky moving very slowly and upwards. The light was circular and in the sky. It did not look like a plane and that is what made us think it was a UFO.

It continued to travel over our heads instead of in front of us. We realized it had suddenly started moving very quickly then it literally made a 90 degree turn extremely fast and started moving in the other direction. It was moving extremely fast and was high in the sky and looked very odd.

We took a picture of it and when we tried it ended up looking very odd, almost like ripples on the water.
