Shape: Light
Duration:several minutes
single bright light in west sky above Lowell looped, dived , soared amd hovered, fading thwn shining

After 7pm saw single very bright light in west sky moving fast and odd,. Seen from hill on east side of Lowell Looking almost due west. I first noticed the light through local trees and above rooftops, less than 45 degrees above west horizon. It was a very bright point of light (whitish blue? Eventually changing in intensity and hue, fading then restoring brightness). It alternately zipped and wobbled in a confined area almost horizontally, then made breathtaking dives only to suddenly recover and soar back up to level hundreds of feet up.

I drove around hill a few minutes and saw it continue its antics, from a few locations. this was absolutely no plane, jet, or helicopter!!! Its speed, erratic eccentric stops starts wobbles...its flaring light fading and returning… It was a mystery, but being in the direction of seemingly over the new north campus building area, perhaps it was new remote control technology. The gforces and power source had to be incredible in order to dive amd rise so fast while shining dimming shining.
