Location: Birmingham, AL
Shape: Light
Duration:over an hour
Unknown object over birmingham metro flashing rapidly, changing directions for over an hour.

Began around 20:07 light was rapidly changing color from red to white to blue to green. Started high in the sky, slowly moving in several different directions. Continued to descend very slowly and diagonally - every once in a white stopping in place and flashing lights in a pattern and then returning to rapid flashing and moving once more. What caught our eyes was the fact that it started moving horizontally to the left ( opposite of what it was originally doing) and back to the right.

Repeated this pattern for about an hour until it began to fizzle out (possibly from heading into the far distance).
