Possible shperical object in northern sky. Colors were green over yellow over red. Disappeard, then reappeared west of original location. Flashing at some points.

First sighting was at 20:30 central time. Object was located in north eastern sky line. Description of object: Possible shpere shaped; top section first appeared green, center is yellow, lower section glowed red. After watching the object with binoculars, it had "drifted" to the east. Then it seemed to have disappeared. Reappeared (possibly even another craft, unlikely) west of the original position. Approximately 30 minutes later the object rotated clockwise. The red glowing section pointed northwest, while the green section seemed to have vanished. The majority of the object seemed to be yellow at this point. The yellow pointed south east towards the ground. Eventually it rotated back. It then seemd to have "drifted" back to its original sighting position. Rotated a 90 degree angle clockwise, then went straight up higher into the atmosphere. It went back to the original colors green on yellow on red (rotated back). Watching it longer, I noticed something was "dropped" suddenly from it. I saw it fall for not even a second and then it disappeared. The object has sat in that one position for several hours now. It is currently 03:31 on 10/12/98.
