Reported: 1998-11-13 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 3 hours
No of observers: 2
Location: Ithaca, NY, USA
Characteristics: Lights on object, Changed Colo
A bright object was seen from a far distance. It gave off a bright white light, sometimes turning gold, the it would turn red and green. The object would me still, then begin to vibrate and then go into orbital like movement.
My mother and I watched this object for three hours it came from the north and remained on the western horizon for approximately three hours. I first noticed it because of the bright white light it gave off and seemed to get bigger. After a while it seemed to get small, and began to give off red, green and white light. Sometimes all at once or just red or white. The object would remain still and then begin to vibrate very rapidly. Sometimes it would just stop vibrating or it would go into parabolic type orbits. (small range orbitals.). Sometimes it would move in a linear fashion when vibrating. It would then stop all movement and remain still. Then movement would start up again. The object seemed to remain at the same level off of the horizon, but moving south over the time we watched it. We reported this to the NY State Police (Name deleted) at the time we were observing it. The next day I reported it to the Cornell Astronomy Dept. (I was an Cornell employee and student at the time). The irony of this event is that a few weeks before witnessing this event, this same time of UFO sighting was broadcast on Unsolved Mysteries. The show also featured video tapes. These sightings occured that same year most of which happened down south. I think the show focused on the crafts that were sighted in one of the southern states. I could be wrong about the year, it could have been 1993 that we saw this, but you can verify the year by contacting the TV show Unsolved Mysteries or your own archives have probably cataloged those same sightings. I am sure this happened in fall, a few weeks after that particular show was run. The following night both my parents and I observed the same object in the same area. I know this is outdated material but it may help.
