Shape: Light
Duration:4 min
I am a mature 54 year old adult that has never scene or reported something of this nature. At 2100 hours I was standing outside my house looking to the S.E. A very. extreamely bright white light decended from the sky approximately one mile away. (I have taken flying lessons and could not believe the brightness of the light.) Then I could see some blue lights on either side of the bright white light. The lighted object held in one position for about 50 seconds then proceeded slowly to the southeast. There were no aircraft sounds. I called the local TV station to see if anyone else had reported something of this nature. There were no reports at 2115 hours.
