Time: 7:50 p.m.

Hi Brian, About 20 minutes ago at approx 7.50pm, our dog was asking to go out the back, so I stood just outside the back door waiting for him to finish relieving himself as it's very cold here this evening, we've had a lot of frost and ice recently. As I was standing there, I glanced up into the sky, it's a very crisp, clear, cloudless sky tonight, all the stars are bright and twinkling, one of the stars caught my eye as it started to pulse very bright red becoming bigger then smaller (our dog had finished by now and returned inside the house, I'm still standing there freezing. Anyways, I wanted to go in to get my camera, but thought that if I did, it would be gone by the time I got back, so I just kept watching it.

I couldn't make-out any actual shape, it just looked like a red star amongst the rest, it then started moving slowly and purposefully from east to a westerly direction, it was slow, quite low by now and totally sound-less, nothing, very smooth the way it was travelling across the sky. Size-wise, about the same size as the stars, but got bigger as it appeared to come down to a lower altitude and moved across the sky as I've already described. I stood there for about (at a guess) 3 or 4 minutes watching as it pulsed a very bright red.

Could it have been some kind of military aircraft ?, but wouldn't there have been sound with it ?. The weather conditions here this evening are crystal clear, dry, cloud-less, very still and quiet evening as I've already said. I thought I just let you know . With best wishes.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
