Red Sphere in Night Sky, Flashes Consecutive Red/Green Lights at Witness

The following is what happened to me on 4/23/14 at 9:16 pm in front of my home on the island of Oahu-Honolulu, Hawaii: On my way home alone from a nearby store, as I walked through my parking, I looked up in the night sky spotting a completley red sphere moving silently towards the northwest, at a fast rate of speed (its movement reminded me of a high traveling satellite).

As soon as I noticed the red orb (bigger than a helicopter, equivalent size to a small turbo-prop plane), I immediately realized it wasn’t a satellite, aircraft, or helicopter (it made no sound). This orb seemed to notice me back (this was my initial gut-feeling), stopping dead in the sky at that moment. Then it started quickly flashing a green light, then a red light, and then a green light at me, consecutively, around 6-8 times and then stopped, while remaining stationary in the sky above. The colors reminded me of that popular electronic game in the 70’s, called Simon (best example of what the red/green lights looked like) with musical tones corresponding to it’s 4 large colored buttons when pushed; or the red and green colors of a traffic light. However, there was absolutely no sound related to my sighting of this hovering red orb, it was completely silent.

It felt as if a message was being communicated to me directly, although I didn’t understand it. I mentally thought back to the object, “I don’t understand the message, what does it mean?” As the orb still remained motionless in the sky above me, nothing more flashed towards me, nor did I get any other communication (gut-feelings/thoughts) from this object. Next, I told the object mentally, “I believe you’re friendly, at least I think you are, but I’m not sure what it is you want. I will tell you anything you want to know, you can ask me, but I don’t want to be abducted & examined,” (laughing to myself now, knowing this sounds absurd as I stood in the dark staring at this sphere for around 5 minutes), although I was serious at the time this happened, and this was the dialogue running through my mind.

Shortly thereafter my neighbor came down the path, I instinctively knew I wasn’t going to share this with him (I don’t think he would’ve believed me anyhow), so I mentally said goodbye to the red orb, still remaining stationary in the sky above me at that time. Before I walked up my stairs, I greeted my neighbor who was unaware of the object. As I walked up the stairs, I wondered if the red orb was still there. I called a close friend as soon as I walked in my place. This friend said she believed my story, however I’ll never know for sure. About a half hour later I did go back outside to see if the red orb was still there…it wasn’t. I regretted leaving the encounter so soon.
