My boyfriend and I were standing outside of his car in a small parking lot, around 10:00 pm in Springfield MA on July 17, 2013, when something strange caught my eye. It appeared to be fairly low in the sky but still high enough so that I was unable tell if it was something out of the ordinary until it descended more. I first witnessed it about 100 feet above the ground. From where i was standing I first spotted it in the upper right portion of the sky. I'm unsure which direction (north, south, east, or west). We thought it was an airplane at first but there were no flashing lights, just a glowing, solid, red, round object. I could tell it was not on fire. There were absolutely no clouds in sight. It slowly moved across the sky, descending toward the ground from right to left. It made no noise at all. It seemed only about 15 to 20 feet away from the ground when it was closest. The red color then completely faded, leaving the same small shape only it appeared to be a very light gray color and was almost transparent. The color reminded me of how the moon looks in the middle of the day. It from right to left in a descending motion. I witnessed it for approximately 2 minutes before it completely vanished. and I have never seen anything like it in my life. I didn't fear it, I was just interested in knowing what it possibly could have been.
I provided an image from the internet that is remarkably similar to what we witnessed.
