San Jose, California Small Orange/Red Light In The Sky

Date: September 15, 2004
Time: 12:45 a.m.

Location of Sighting: San Jose/Los Gatos Border from foothills towards south San Jose.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round bright orange/red.


About 30 minutes ago I was letting the cat out and decided to go out front of the house for some fresh air. I was standing in the front yard scanning the sky as just a moment earlier I saw a shooting star. As I was looking up towards the foothills I saw a small orange/red light in the sky coming in my direction. At first I thought It might be the police helicopter as I see it quite often this time of night. As it got closer I noticed that it wasn't a helicopter at all. I thought it might be a plane. But as it approached there was no sound and no blinking lights what so ever. I kept an eye on it as it moved very smoothly and from where I was standing it disappeared behind some trees briefly and as it emerged from behind the trees I noticed that it slowed down some...almost to a standstill and then what looked like some jerking motion. And then it suddenly disappeared.
I continued to scan the sky for a good ten minutes in the general area that it disappeared into and saw absolutely NOTHING thereafter.

Note: The sky was and still is completely clear of clouds or any mist/fog.


Thank you to the witness for the report.
