Location: Bridgeport, CT
Shape: Circle
Duration: 7 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A large red ball descending at an extremely rapid rate of speed from very high above larger and faster than planes disappearing .

I witnessed from the terrace of my apartment in Bridgeport, Connecticut, in the southern part of the sky a red ball about the size of a quarter of the moon that night fly from east to west at a downward trajectory from the top of the trees about the same height of the moon whiz at a high rate of speed downward and disappear. It was unlike anything I had ever seen and I am a constant watcher of the night skies. It lasted about seven seconds. Planes go by all the time and fly horizontally and look like specs. This was large, came out of nowhere almost as if it came from another dimension. It disappears out of my sight line and although I watched for a while longer did not reappear.

I am sixty year old and not prone to fantasies. I love looking at constellations and planets. For instance I can see Orion and Jupiter from my terrace. I worked as an administrative assistant and taught children. I currently take care of my 82 year old mother. When I was young our school had a planetarium which started my fascination with the night sky.
