Location: Sidney, OH
Shape: Sphere
Duration:about 3 minuets
Sphere that emitted blue & red flashes & disapered without a trace.

I was looking out my kitchen window{it faces East}, when I saw slightly to the North East a sphere that was flashing{quickly flashing} blue & then red. The flashes were 3 blue to 4 red. The sphere was moving slightly North, but then returned to the spot I saw it at, then it disappeared. There wasn't any white lights like you'd see with either a helocopter or an airplane. I then went to my back door{which also faces East} and I couldn't see the sphere. I returned to the kitchen window & there it was again. The blue & red flashing wasn't as intense, but it was still flahing. I saw a small aircraft flying lower & South of the sphere, but headed in an Easterly direction. I looked back at the sphere & noticed it wasn't flashing, but there was a blue & red light, then it disapeared again. I haven't seen it since. The sphere appeared to be large{it was slightly over my neighbors garage...from my angle/visual prospective}.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the star, Sirius. PD))
