Duration: 2.0 hours
No of observers: 2

Location: Plymouth, MN, USA

Characteristics: Lights on object, Changed Colo

Iobserved an object changing colors and moving in a manner inconsistent with anything i've ever seen. I woke my wife and asked her to look out to the northwest. she saw the object too and advised me to report it to the local airport. It moved like a kite in the wind and changed from a light green to yellow-white, to red every few seconds. it gave the appearence of moving away from me and eventually faded from view.Using binoculars, I could dissern an oval shape tilted on its edge at a great distance from me, maybe 50 miles. I waited until it faded away behind the trees. the light source looked like a gas-filled oval tube on the object's edge. I WILL be watching again tonight.

Ioriganally saw an object changing colors around 01;00 hrs but dismissed it as some kind of sattilite or maybe a planet reflecting light. I looked out again 1 hour later and saw it contnue to chane colors. I waited 20 minutes then went to wake up my wife. We both watched it from inside for about 1 hour. I called around until i got the phone number to report it. Afterwords went outside with binoculars to confirm my suspision. There were no other objects in the sky exhibiting the same color or movement. It appread to h0ver and dip in the same part of the sky until about 04;00.
