Duration:2 hours
Expanding/retracting spherical object sighted in southwestern sky.

Around 21:00 my family was returning home from shopping when my brother noticed what he thought was a shooting star coming down but it stopped midair.

When we got home we noticed a very bright spherical object in the southwestern sky. At first we thought it might be a planet or bright star, but after a few minutes of observation we noticed it would change size and seemed to have lights that would come from and go back to it.

At first the lights looked like aircraft, but they moved in an erratic manner and continually appeared and dissapeared near the main object.

I got my video camera and zoomed in as far as I could and noticed the object was strangely textured and when I was zoomed all the way in it semed to retreat until I could no longer make out the texture. We watched this go on for several hours and saw what appeared to be dozens of aircraft moving around in the sky at very low altitudes. Some would appear to stop suddenly and change direction. After going inside our house to change tape in the camera the object was gone entirely along with all of the various aircraft.
