Posted: 7/14/1999
Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Light
Duration: 25 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
A light in the sky was seen moving slowly through the sky. After moving to the north, the light started to fade, moving away from us to the west.

My friend and I saw a light moving through the sky really slow. It was moving slightly to the north, very slowly. Every couple of minutes, the light would start to fade, and when it did, the object moved to the north a little faster than what it did before. As soon as the light came to a stop, it would become a little brighter. After the light moved for an estimated 5 miles (we were far away from the light), the light switched from a northward route to a south-west one. Eventually the object got so far away, we couldn't see it anymore. This whole sighting lasted about 25 to 30 minutes. The light changed colors from red to white. If someone wasn't watching the light close enough, they wouldn't be able to tell it was moving. Two of us witnessed this light, and we both checked to see if we were seeing the same things as the object moved. My friend and I have seen odd things before, but this one topped it off. Neither of us have seen anything like it.
