I wonder if there is any footage of this alleged red light? The witness, especially being an astronomer should have had a camera or the likes handy. (I know I would)
The article mentioned that this light was seen for at least 5 mins by him...... surely it was enough time for him to take a few snaps.

Yeah i agree if it was visible for five minutes I would have expected a few photos lol. Also if it took 5 minutes to traverse the sky it seems quite slow, of course generally speaking with no direct knowledge of his vantage point. That would suggest something floating perhaps, could been a flare of some sort maybe? I am of course only throwing out totally random thoughts on the article as there is nothing more tangible to aid in analysis.

All helis do have an ACL (Anti Collision Light). The ACL is of red color, flashing and the strongest source of light on a heli.
I would say that match better than an aircraft of extraterrestrial origin here.

An interesting sighting. Hopefully some video will surface. It's too bad he didn't get any pictures of this event. I wouldn't think that this was the standard aircraft because it was described as a 'large' pulsating red light. I hope they acquire more information for their investigations.

Be careful about watching the sky, it may change your life forever.

Amateur astronomer was so intrigued watching a mystery light for 5 minutes that he apparently doesn't go outside and/or get binocs for a clearer look?

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

It was May Day, so the amateur astronomer was totally sloshed.

I have a tiny RC helicopter that has a bright red flashing LED.  It could easily fly over rooftops and cause such a sighting.

Just think: If he'd had a camera or the nous to go get one, we could, even as we speak, be examining a black and blurry photo of a red dot. :P

Astronomers reporting UFO's.

I sense the waves getting more intense.  Here's hoping; it's about time I saw one.

I don't recommend getting too close though.  Lots of people have been burned or suffered radiation symptoms.

Keep yer distance is my advice.
