Full Description of event/sighting: During the early morning hours of August 11, 2007 at approximately 12:30 a.m. I was standing outside the Lethbridge Lodge Hotel. An extremely bright light, high in the sky caught my attention. I remember thinking, "that's odd, a plane with a spot light on it". The object had no flashing lights, moved unusually slow and resembled that of a giant headlight. This object was extremely bright and appeared to be very high in the sky (approx 20,000 feet). As I faced west looking approx 45 degrees in the sky, the object was travelling directly at me in an easterly direction, again, at a very slow rate of speed. As the object got closer I thought it to be about half the size of a full moon whilst high in the sky. The object then came to a stop made a 90 degree turn to the left (north) and travelled at the same slow speed in that direction.
After travelling North for approx 10 to 15 seconds the bright light began to fade slowly then turned a very bright red color, then back to white and then disappeared while still travelling north. Shortly before and after seeing this bright light, I did see several falling stars. This bright object that I saw in the sky did not in anyway shape of form resemble a falling star. Stars fall or shoot. This was travelling very slow and had no flashing lights. Shortly after the sighting I was joined by a co-worker. I said to him, "you wouldn't believe what I just saw!", he said. "What, the bright light in the sky". I said "ya, you saw it too." He said yes, him and 2 other friends were watching it as well. Before saying anything to him about what exactly I saw, I asked him to describe to me what he saw. He described exactly what I saw, including the "red" color and the brightness.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
