|Blue and red light starts off very bright and then disappears
My brother and I were on the beach walking in a north direction. The sky was really clear because the stars and mars was clearly visible, the moon as well(cresent shape). I had noticed a blue and red light in the sky and looked at it. It caught my attention because of its brightness. I had only been looking at it for a few seconds to try and figure out what it was when it started to grow dim. Within about 2 seconds it had grown dim to the brightness of a star and not a second after that it was completely gone. I looked at my brother and he confirmed what i saw. About 10 minutes after the sighting was over I met up with my other younger brother and he told me he had seen the same light, he described to me the same light I had seen. At first I thought it might of been a plane and the angle of the plane made the bright light, but in this case the light would have been a yellow or white color. The light I saw was a distinct blue light on top and red light underneath the blue light. It did not move to the left, right, up or down. It keep the same position and only grew dim in a very short amount of time and then completely disappeared. Also there were no other planes around the light and very few in the sky. This is all I can think of at this time.
((NUFORC Note: We believe that the cluster of reports that appear her for the evening of Monday, June 25, 2001, were caused by the launch of an ICBM by the U. S. Navy from the Kennedy Space Center at approximately 2115 hrs. (EDT). We are grateful to the FAA Military Liason office in Jacksonville, FL; the USAF 45th RANDS unit; and the Naval Operations and Testing Unit ("NOTU") for their assistance in our attempt to determine the cause of these reports. A similar test was conducted by the USS West Virginia submarine off the east coast of Florida on March 07, 1998, which caused similar reports. PD))
