BRIGHT STAR CHARACTERISTIC IN FIXED POSITION THEN IT MOVED STRAIGHT UP INTO THE AIR AS IT DID SO THE LIGHT WENT OFF & A RED & GREEN LIGHT APPEARED IT CONTINUED TO MOVE UP & WEST EVENTURALLY IT QUIT MOVEING UP BUT PROCEEDED WEST

I FIRST SPOTTED THE OBJECT WHILE SITTING ON MY COUCH. I SAW THE OBJECT THROUGH MY GLASS STORM DOOR. I TURNED THE POARCH LIGHT OFF TRYING TO GET A BETTER LOOK AT IT. AT FIRST I THOUGHT THAT IT WAS A STREET LIGHT. BUT IT WAS MUCH TOO HIGH IN THE SKY TO BE A STREET LIGHT. IT WAS VERY BRIGHT& BIG SO I DID NOT THINK THAT IT COULD BE A STAR. FINALLY, I ASSUMED THAT IT WAS A STAR SO I CALLED MY MOTHER TO TELL HER ABOUT IT. AT THAT TIME MY NEIGHBOR CAME OUTSIDE TO LEAVE. I RAN OUTSIDE TO TELL HIM TO LOOK AT THAT TIME THE "STAR" STARTED MOVING STRAIGHT UP INTO THE AIR ALSO THE BRIGHT WHITE LIGHT WENT OFF & A RED & A GREEN LIGHT CAME ON. AFTER IT MOVED UP IT STARTED MOVING WEST AT THE SAME TIME LIKE IN A SLANT ALSO IT LEFT A VERY DIM TAIL BEHIND BUT VERY BRIEFLY ALMOST LIKE FIREWORKS DOTHEN IT STOPPED MOVING UP & ONLY MOVED WEST. MY NEIGHBOR & I WERE SAYING "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?' TO EACH OTHER WHILE IT WAS STILL MOVING UP & WEST I RAN INSIDE TO GET MY CAMERA. WHEN I CAME BACK OUT MY NEIGHBOR SAID GO GET YOUR CAMERA. I SAID IVE GOT IT IVE GOT IT SO I TOOK SOME PICTURES THEN HE SAID TAKE ANOTHER PICTURE MY CAMERA ONLY TAKES PICTURES UP TO 15 FT THIS THING WAS HUNDREDS OF FEET AWAY SO I KNOW IT WILL NOT SHOW UP IN A PICTURE. THIS OBJECT NEVER PUT OFF ANY SOUND ANY TIME THAT I HAVE SEEN AN AIRPLANE OR HELICOPTER THAT LOW TO THE GROUND I HAVE HEARD A SOUND
