Location: Brooklyn Park, MD
Shape: Light
Duration:4 minutes
Orb of light changed colors while floating in the sky before darting around and vanishing

At around 22:00 EST I made my way outside and noticed a flashing bright red light to the north east. At first I thought it was just a plane but the object did not move. I went inside and grabbed my daughter to show her the object and when I returned the light had changed colors as well as the position of the light source but had not moved.

I had two more adults join me outside to ask what they thought of the light. After two minutes of watching the light change color the object began to move at a seemingly instantaneous speed to the south west then slightly back north before heading south west again and stopping before the object turned to a red color again.

While trying to get a better view of the object which was now behind a tree we could see the object go from a red color to a green and then to a white before disappearing after being visible for four minutes.
