Location of Sighting: Menomonie, Wisconsin (See Map)

Description: I was taking pictures of the Moon and Venus when I saw something on the corner of my eye. It moved from my right to my left and got very bright. Then there was a reddish beam if light and then it was gone. It was too difficult to tell the size because I was still looking through my camera at the Moon. It seemed to be a bright white at first, then a strange reddish glow. It was hard to explain. Then when I went through my pictures, it was there. It appears at first very small, but faint. The next picture is much larger, but still faint. Then the last picture it is illuminated and very bright. It appears to be a sphere of some sort.

Note: Normally I would think that the bright light in the photo above to the left of the moon could be a "lens flare" affect, but considering that the witness saw the light rules out this explanation. The brightening and enlargement of the light is unusual. I have no explanation for this sighting.
