At 10pm Central time, I noticed a full white moon above. The lunar moon was rising in the east and was bright orange or blood red. I watched the white full moon for a while when it started to ascend when I tried to back up to the back porch to get parents to witness the UFO. It became a smaller full moon until it looked like a bright star, then dim star, then a point of light, then it disappeared above.
