Astonishing Sound and Changing Lights Seen North Of Cedar rapids, Iowa on December 20th 3:15 A.M. +

Awakened by loud hum. Hum lasted about 5 seconds. Hum immediately followed by a blue light which lit the entire horizon this light then immediately followed by a green light which also lit the entire horizon.

Lights were NOT a flash radiating outward but were almost like enormous bars of light (horizon to horizon) radiating upward toward the heavens.

This process was repeated at least 5 times and, we believe more as we heard it and could see our room lit from without before rising to look out the window - we personally witnessed at least 5 cycles.

((NUFORC Note: Following an online new article about this event, published by a newspaper in Cedar Rapids on December 20, 2012, NUFORC received a number of reports from other witnesses. They will be posted here on a future date, if we received follow-up written reports from the other witnesses. PD))
