Round bright glowing object,blue and red top and bottom,bright white glow center. Hovering,moved when I took picture,returned,left area when approached by aircraft.
I was on my way to bed at 11:45pm,when I noticed a bright glowing light in the sky. It was about 20 degrees above the horizon SW of my position. The sky was about half overcast in light cloud formations. I was the first one to see it,so I got the binoculars to take a closer look. It was a bright glowing blue,red and white object,looked like it was spinning.I then called my daughter and wife to take a look to see what they thought. It was obvious that it was not an aircraft,because both fixed wing jet,and helecopter flew over and the object remained for awhile longer,untill the helicopter approached too close,then the object drifted off in a westerly direction.The object looked to be kind of round.I went outside to get a picture,which I did!at this point the object drifted off in the distance,but still in sight. When I went back in the house the object returned,thats when the helicopter approached too close and the object left.
