Shape: Light
Duration:one hour
On 032699 at 2330 hours I noticed a light in the sky that kept changing from red to gree to yellow. I obseved the light, stationary in the sky with binoculars, for approximately one hour, before the cloud cover concealed it. Three nights later I observed the same object in another part of the sky. I summons three of my neighbors, who saw the light also. We observed the light through binoculars for approximately 45 min before in moved below the tree line. The entire time the light continued to change from red to green to yellow. Through the binoculars it almost appeared the red light was rotating around in a circle.

I first saw this light on 032699 at 2330 hours. The thing that caught my attention is the red light that was ommiting from itt. I got my binoculars and through them I could see the light was changing from red to green to yellow. It also appeared the red light may have been rotating around in a circlet. My wife and I watched the light for approximately one hour, before the cloud cover concealed it. The light appeared to be stationary and was as bright at the stars in the sky. Three days later on 032999 at 2300 hours I again saw the light in a different part of the sky. Through the binoculars I could still see the light changing from red to green to yellow. This time I summons three of my neighbors who also observed the light and the changing colors. It also appeared this time that the light was moving. We watched it for approximately 45 min before it dissappeared below the tree line. We are not pranksters. We are reporting this because we would like to know if any one else in the area has reported this thing. We would also like to know what it is. Two of us are police officers and another one of us is in the U.S. Air Force. My dad was in the Air force for twenty five years and I lived on Air Force Bases for much of that time. I know what an air plane looks like and this was not a plane or a star. None of the other hundred stars in the sky on these two nights was doing what this particular light was doing. Tonight I'm going to try and get pictures if i can.
