Location: Charleston, WV, USA

Shape: Unknown
Characteristics: Lights on object

A craft moving gracefully but with unusual speed, and very quiet, shining multi-colored lights wildly.

I was lying in a hammock in my back yard, near Kanawha State Forest. From the direction of the forest moving toward South Hills came a craft shining lights of red, white and possibly another color. The lights were moving wildly, the craft made an unusually quiet noise like an amplified insect, and it moved quickly but gracefully towards my house in a way that no helicopter could. I ran inside, afraid. The noise was audible for a minute from inside the house, then gone. An unusually large shooting star hit the atmosphere a minute or so after the noise disappeared.
