Characteristics: Aura or haze around object, Changed Colo

A strong light, a blue object, no noise, traveling south to north.

After hearing Mr. Davenport on the Art Bell program I thought I should pass this on.

On or about 4-22-98 but definitely around 2130 hours, something illuminated my backyard as well as the entire area. It was much like lightening but of shorter duration. I looked to the east and saw a round, blue object which instantly changed to red. The object was traveling south to north at a high rate of speed with an altitude estimated to be 1500-3000 feet. The downward descent angle I would estimate at 25-35 degrees. There was no noise and the entire incident lasted 2-3 seconds.

I have not found another person who witnessed this incident.

The night was clear and no storms nearby.

Thank you.
