Duration:20 seconds
Bright craft followed by 6 police aircraft.

I was driving on my way home from work around 9:00 pm, and as I passed the park near my house when something in the sky passed my eye. It was very bright, and naturally, my curiousity got the best of me. I sat there for about 20-30 seconds watching this thing. It started stationary, and after about 3 seconds, I visually lined it up with a tree to track it's movement, in which there was none that I could notice. It then swiftly moved the right, and then stopped again. 6 aircraft, couldn't tell if they were helicopters of planes due to distance, appeared. The helicopters appeared to have police type flashing lights on them someplace. Every aircraft had these lights except the craft in question. The craft was very bright, and appeard to change shape and color. It went from a light white, to a dark orange, and the back again. It was after sunset, so it wasn't a reflection on the craft that accounted for the light. I went home to get my digital camera, came back, and the craft was gone, but the helicopters stayed there for about 2 minutes more, and then flew away in formation.
