Explosive corona.....Shooting Star becomes disk that hovers

In the Northwest sky a bright flash eminated from one of the stars, it seemed to radiate out in a bright red corona. My eyes then followed what seemed to be a shooting star from that area north and to the east in a long arc. When the "shooting star" should have gone out of site it turned and came towards me. What came before me was thicker than a disk. If I had to draw it it would be more like two dinner plates with an old fashion reel to reel tape case in between. It seemed to be made of entirely white blue light. It was quite small actually. As it hovered I heard in my head a distinct "Hello" I answered back, and that is the last thing I can remember.

((NUFORC Note: We will request more information from the witness, and will invite the party to submit an illustration of what the described object looked like. PD))
