Location: Waterford, MI
Shape: Sphere
Duration:25 minutes
I looked and saw a sphere shaped object with many differntly colored rapidly flashing lights.

It was late on a warm night in July. I was outside my father's house with my step brother, brother, and grandfather. My step-brother was down by the lake while the rest of us were casually visiting about 50 yards away on the porch. The silence of the night was broken by my step brother running up the hill from the lake. He told us to all look up in the sky pretty much strait out. I looked and saw a sphere shaped object with many differntly colored rapidly flashing lights. There was absolutely no noticable pattern to the flashing lights. The craft zipped back and forth in a zig zagging pattern at an uncomprehendable rate of speed. (it could not possibly have been a plane or a helicopter, it was moving way to fast!!!) After repeating this pattern for about 6 and a half minutes it stopped and hovered in the same spot for about another 3 minutes. A red ball of light was then lowered from the bottom of the craft and the craft repeated the zig zag pattern for another 7 minutes or so. The UFO then slowly made its way over to the rear left corner of the lake and hovered there for a couple of minutes. the craft then proceeded to drop a ball of light and the ball hit the ground and lit up the entire sky with bright flash. (I swear to god on all of this!!!) Throughout the entire account the craft did produce a sound that i or any member of my party could hear it was silent. The craft then proceeded to fly off to left more and I eventually lost sight as it flew by my house. I did not care to follow to the front of the house as I was pretty shaken by the entire expereience. The date my not be exact as this happened a long time ago but every thing I have stated here is absolutely true. The UFO was somewhat distant throughout the entire experience being as it was not a close encounter.
