Location: Palo Alto, CA
Shape: Light
Bright, constant white light with lesser lights flashing in the colors of magenta, green, blue, and purple in the SW sky.

Object apeared as a bright, constant white light with other lights of lesser intensity flashing in the colors of magenta, green, blue, and purple. It was in the southwest sky, about 30-40 degrees elevation. At first we thought it was an aircraft or even venus or mars, but it sort of lazily danced around, swaying and making small circular motions. Both my wife and I viewed it through 10x50 binoculars, and while we were able to view the lights more clearly, we could not make out a specific shape. I called a friend, an amateur stargazer, who lives about 2 miles away, and he was also able to see it both with the naked eye and with the aid of 7x35 bincoulars. He could not explain it either.

((NUFORC Note: We have invited the witness to look again at that area of the sky, at approximately the same time of night. PD))
