Golden UFO Sphere in the Sky

I was in my backyard having a cigarette between the hours of 430-515am on June 15th 2012. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed a roundish bright golden light coming over the mountain by the radio antenna's. I watched it flying then suddenly stop in mid air. It proceeded to stay there for about a minute then took off towards the south and disappeared. There was no sound coming from the object like you would hear if it was an airplane.

I was so excited to see this phenomenon I got on my Facebook page and mentioned it and how bummed out I didn't get it on video. I continued to watch that part of the sky and mountain area for a while longer. Suddenly a rainbow colored light appeared on the mountain. The rainbow colors reminded me of a prism.

The object appeared out of nowhere. It was like a light that was turned on except it illuminated a large part of the mountain with rainbow prism like colors. The roundish rainbow colored object rose about 100-200 feet off the ground then proceeded at a slow pace northbound along the bottom of the mountain. The object stopped turned bright golden color and rose quite rapidly straight up and hovered in the air glowing.

I grabbed my cell phone at this time as it hovered in the air to record a video. I posted the video on YouTube at

In the video I tried to get some reference points like the moon and another plane that happened to be flying over at the time of filming. Neither plane nor object interacted with each other. I continued to film the object until it started flying southbound out of sight.

I have lived in this area since childhood and fully aware that I live over the flight path of 3 major airports. I know the difference between a plane, helicopter, hang-glider, para-sailing, etc. I was asked (was it a Chinese lantern) Oh not even close. The size of the object on the ground was huge. Chinese lanterns don't come in sizes of mansions that I am aware of. There isn't even a helicopter the size of this object I witnessed.
