As I was putting my jacket on in my upstairs apartment I looked out my window in the West. In the distance at about 600 yards I saw what I first thought was a jet then I thought it was a comet. It slowly traveled along at about 10 mph when it turned upward and completely disappeared into outer space, as its 20 foot tail followed. It was all a bright white. 7 seconds later an object showed up in one second, as it stopped and hovered. It looked like a beautiful precious multi-colored stone, and was about a quarter of an inch in diameter. In 3 seconds it disappeared in part of second about where the comet object did.

Three days later, at about the same time of day, I was walking home from the library. As I was crossing a field, as a shortcut home I saw it again. Only this time it filled one-eighth of the sky in the north. It was about 120 feet high and traveling at about 10 mph westward. In about 10 seconds it turned upward, and disappeared into outer space, as its vaporous tail followed with it.

Since then I saw this object in my area 4 or 5 times at about 6,000 feet altitude. I could not mistake them for jets.
