Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
The object moved slowly and flashed 5 colors. I watched it for 30 minutes before going to bed.

I went out to smoke a ciggarette at about 2:15 am and saw a bright light through the trees in my yard. It was at about 35 to 40 degrees in the sky, and was twinkling brightly. Soon it moved so that I could not see it, so I changed positions and there it was. It moved again and again, but only slightly, and with no orderly direction. It was emitting very bright white lights and flashing colors now and then, with no order or pattern. The main colors were red, and yellow, with some aqua, and twice a purple blue color. I moved to my neighbor's yard to watch it without the trees in the way, and it hovered for the whole 30 minutes I watched, with some movement. A Plane approached once but then turned off, and the object stayed where it was. I showed my husband the place where I had seen it, and he guessed it must have been about 2 miles high. It was MUCH brighter than the stars, but not close enough that I could make out a shape, but the lights it gave off suggested a sphere shape. I don't know for sure what it was, but I have no better guess than a space craft. Although I could hear the plane that approached, I heard no sound from this object, however it could have been too far away for me to hear. It appeared to be hovering over the Redmond Valley.
