Date of Sighting: February 28, 2010
Time of Sighting: 7:23 PM EST
Location of Sighting: Lackawanna, New York (See Map)

Description: This object caught the corner of my eye while I was sitting on my couch. It was a red colored circle that was kind of a two toned red. Half of it was a brighter red than the other half and it was glowing. It came out of nowhere. I could see that it was getting closer because it was getting bigger. This was not any kind of plane! It moved in a very erratic way. As it came closer you could see it moving right then up, left, down and then finally it was moving away getting smaller. I ran down to get my dad to see this object, but by the time I got him and went outside it was just a little red dot. It then just disappeared. I do not know what this was, but I could definitely say it was not a plane by the way it moved. This object had no sound and was only in view for about 3 minutes. I was so amazed by this and didn't even think about grabbing a camera. I was just so stunned by this and trying to figure out what this could be. I saw this on a cloudy night so it had to be kind of low in order to be seen. I am so shocked by this as I am always looking into the sky watching the moon and stars, but this was no star or moon or a plane! WOW that is all I can say.

Note: The witness listed a variety of erratic areal maneuvers that this light exhibited. The light was quite large and bright. A check of the weather showed that some snow was falling in nearby Buffalo at the time of the sighting. Some letup of the weather was noted at Buffalo around the time of sighting. Skies were mostly cloudy with cloud layers at 2,000 feet (few clouds), 3,500 feet (partly cloudy) and 9,500 feet (mostly cloudy). Given this weather scenario the light (object) was flying quite low.
