Time_of_Sighting: 19:15
At 19:15 i saw a very wide and brilliant light in the northern sky,
there was a red light on top of the wide bright light. Since the
airport is north of the position I was driving I tought that it was
a plane in a weird path to land. Few minutes later I looked again
at the light and its position havent move. It was stationary, since
by then I was close to home I accelerated to get there faster. It
was 19:28 when I get home, I told my wife and daughter to see at
the light while I went to get the binoculars and camera. The
binoculars are quite good with excellent magnification (10X50)and
have never detect any distortion or aberration. The camera is a
digital olympus. With the binoculars we detected two round white
circles fairly close to each other, about 1.5 diameters separated,
with a red flashing poit of light on the 10 o'clock position, we
observed for a few minutes, tried to call different tv stations to
report it, but all we get was a recording. The light started to dim
quite rapidly and at 19:36 faded completely away. The relative
position was 20 deg magnetic and at an elevation of about 25 deg.
By the difficulty to observe the circles of light I think that they
were faily distant, and considering that the binoculars has a field
of 341 ft at a distance of 1,000 ft, the circles of light must be
extremely big. during all the observation time it maintained its
position, the red flashing light did not have an apparent pattern
or periodicity and seems to came out of a point in the top of both
circles. The circles were perfectly round of white light that start
changing color with the setting sun. It was nor a weather ballon,
and was not an airplane. It may be something that reflect two well
defined circles of light and had a red beacon on top.
Your guess is as good as mine.
