Duration:20MIN.
A BRIGHT OBJECT CAME OUT OF THE WEST SLOWLY AND LOW, THEN ROSE TO THE HIEGHT OF THE STARS.

AT 20:10 07/12/2000 I SPOTTED A BRIGHT RED ROUND CRAFT FLYING SLOWLY OUT OF THE WEST AT ABOUT 15000 FT. I ESTIMATED THE HIEGHT BY THE INCOMING PLANES IN THE AREA. IT STOPPED AND CHANGED FROM BRIGHT RED TO A LESS BRIGHT RED ALTERNATING BACK AND FORTH. THE OBJECT THEN MOVED UP TO ABOUT 30,000FT. AND STOPPED FOR ABOUT 5 MIN. IT THEN ROSE TO A HIEGHT EQUAL TO A BRIGHT STAR, AND SEEMED TO TURN THE SAME COLOR AS THE STARS. MY FAMILY VIEWED THIS FROM THE FIRST PART.
