Sighting Details

I was inside my home at around 9.00 pm in late summer - early fall 2008 when my son (who was 25 at that time) called me out to the deck on the back of the house and said "Dad you should see this-its really weird" So I went outside and we both watched this round shaped object moved in a straight line about 45 degrees above the horizon . We could not tell how big it was or how far away it was. We watched it move across the sky and all of a sudden six spikes of light ( three on each side about half the size of the object in length) appeared , we were fixated on this thing when it turned a bright orange-red color and after a few seconds it was gone! We looked at each other and agreed that this was a U.F.O I went in the house and reported it on a U.F.O web site (don't remember which one) but never heard nothing back so I thought maybe it was a satellite or something identified. But, watching U.F.O.shows on the Military network today about the sightings in 2008 got me to report it again. I was 51 at the time and it was the only time that I ever seen anything like that !! Thanks for reading.
