Chevron shape hovering in place

On January 4th at 9:19 I was outside smoking a cigarette. I noticed a large chevron shape hovering in one spot. It had lights running along the outer edge and at times appeared to move from left to right. I see low flying air craft all the time and have never seen something so large at this elevation. The object dropped lower and I went to my back yard to film some more and by the time I got there it was gone. I took the footage and zoomed in and you can tell there’s a cylindrical vase like structure sitting inside the chevron shape with a hole in the center. The object at time can be seen emitting a tail from the center at times in the video and the lights appear to also pulse brighter and softer at times. I have more footage if interested.


We spoke with the witness on 2/29/24. Witness was a drone pilot so was very familiar with drones and didn’t belive it could have been that. He estimated the size was larger than an apirplane, and that it change colors and appeared to be "shaking" as he watched it. It moved from farther away to over his neighborhood. He stated he felt that it "knew" he was watching it. He only took his eyes off it for less than a minute when he went inside to get a better camera, and stated that it would have had to move extremely fast to have disappeared in that amount of time.
