It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. Hovering and dancing lights, round shape object.

I was looking at the sky and saw what I thought was two airplaines, but one seemed to be much higher than the other. As I kept observing, the one moved on and the other seemed to be moving very slow and then pretty much stayed in the same area and seemed to be hovering. After several minutes, I went in and got my binoculars, which is all I own. When I zeroed in on the subject it had all of these wild dancing mostly straight dancing lines. As I made the subject bigger, it appeared to be round in shape with a lot of white lights on the bottom of it, and appeared to have red and green lights around the outer edge, but the lights were stationary. Then I would take it down to a size of a pin point and the lights were all over the place (dancing again). I did this several times, and the same thing would happen. After two hours of watching this, I was too tired to stay up any longer. Could this have been a satellite of some sort? Do have the information of what may have been flying around at that time?


We observe that the description is not inconsistent with that of a "twinkling" star. We receive many such reports. The chromatic display, as well as the duration of the sighting, are suggestive of a celestial body. Visible satellites do not "hover," as the witness seems to imply.
