Man Sees Erratic Moving Red Light in Night Sky.

Location of Sighting: Martinsville, Indiana
Date of Sighting: June 27, 2015
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM EDT

Description: I am trying to determine what it is I may have seen in the early evening sky. I was outside my house on the phone and looked up and saw what appeared to be a small red dot in the sky. When I noticed it I thought to myself that is weird ( more of a feeling). Usually I wouldn’t think much of lights in the sky. As I focused my attention on it it began to move extremely fast. It would move on a horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines zipping at random in one of the directional paths I mentioned. In whatever direction it would move it would zip for a short distance then stop and zip in another direction and stop and kept repeating this pattern without actually having any pattern to its movement. Two houses down on the opposite side of the street they have been setting off fireworks and I kept telling myself maybe it was hot amber from something they shot off. However, due to the odd extremely fast movements this is not possible. We have planes that fly in the area so I am use to those and there is nothing that I have ever seen that can move that fast and change direction that quick. This is the second time (once when I was younger) in my life that I have ever seen anything that I cannot rationalize. I have included a clip of what is similiar to what I saw. I did not tape the video. It is just similar to what I saw. Also due to it being on video it is not as clear as what I saw, but gives basic idea.

If you have any idea what it is I may have witnessed I would really like to know.

P.S. do not tell me it is a weather balloon (LOL) or a Chinese lantern. (I have seen these and are familiar with them and they do not zip in random directions.)

Note: The witness provided the following link (YouTube) of a video of a similar object:

Note: There were rain showers in the area near the time of the sighting. There also had been earlier thunderstorms. However, it is doubtful that the red light was weather related.

    I saw something move exactly like this pure red in color and it made a pulse shape in the sky on it’s exit.

    I decided to do a search and found your post. I also saw this same thing. My location is south central Kansas.

    I see the same exact thing over new Albany, IN often. I assumed it was drones, but I don’t know for sure.

    I was googling this to explain to my boyfriend something I saw 15 years ago, and this is exactly it. I was sneaking a cigarette out my bedroom window when I was 15 when I saw it so around the year 2002. I’m in the United Kingdom.

    Three of my friends and I saw the same thing. One of my friends said it was probably a weather balloon or a satellite, but this red orb made the most unusual movements that it’s just driving me insane trying to figure out if it really was an alien space ship. Honestly I don’t think anything on this planet could be that high and make erratic movements like what we saw. This was in Yonkers, New York.

    I saw also exactly something this. It my girlfriend (now my wife) and I who saw it. That was many years ago. I asked her again. She still remembered the light exactly what had been described. It was almost 10 years ago in the town of Liloan, Cebu, Philippines.

    December 16, 2017: Why no responses about this question after all this time? I am near St. Louis in a small town in Illinois. Every evening I see the same erratic moving light that changes colors from white to reddish. The time is early evening around 7 PM. It moves higher in the night sky as the evening progresses. I have done every conceivable search that I can think of for over a year and there is nothing to be found. I saw this on line this evening and it is exactly what I see regularly. It is ironic that the majority of sightings are in Indiana, Illinois, and Kansas. Help in identification would be greatly appreciated. I am fully aware that it is not a plane, satellite, or weather balloon.

    Well, you’re not crazy. My cousin and I used to watch these when we were young (30 some years ago). They were much smaller than most of the stars in the sky, but you could tell they were WAY up there. The ones we watched were a lot steadier than this, but would move slowly then ‘zip’ a long distance, slow down and zip again. We watched these on multiple nights. This was entertaining for a kid at that time.

    I saw the exact thing today (4/13/2018) 8:15 PM, but it was different from video clip. I saw a pure red light moving in high speed from south to west. It was very high in speed. I am from India.

    I saw the exact same fast moving red dot in St. John’s, Newfoundland in 2003. It was in Cape Spear. It was dark, and it erratically zipped around the sky and was quite far up in the sky. You could see the city lights in the distance and it zipped over the city, made a quick dead stop over the city and went straight down into the city. It moved too fast to be a plane or anything else. I will never forget it.

    All of you are not wrong what your eyes see. We are not alone.
