Location: Tulsa, OK
Shape: Changing
Duration:30 seconds
Unusual colored object changing to white, rapidly diminishing in size tapering brightness.

ime: 4:50 AM cdt Sky conditions: thin overcast per infrared satellite recordings on weather.unisys.com Unusual lighted object spotted moving southwesterly direction over city while driving south on Lewis Avenue near 3rd street, returning home from airport passenger drop-off. First noticed when object was easterly direction from Lewis, crossed in front of observer at indeterminate altitude. Speed also indeterminate due to unknown distance to object.

Initial size of object approximately that of a lemon held at arm's length, shape indeterminate, colors varying and ended up white. Rapidly grew smaller. By the time observer got camera on target (maybe 10 seconds max), object had diminished in size to almost a point. Short video shows very bright white light moving along straight line across the observer's route, in a southwesterly direction becoming rapidly smaller then vanishing.

Unusual lights and change of object's size unrecorded, but the character of the point of white light and the rapid disappearance (tapered of rapidly, not a sudden “off” like a light switch phenomenon) are recorded on video. Possibly tapered off due to entering cloud layer but no haziness evident on video.
