Location: Lahaina (Maui), HI
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 3or4 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright sphere, brightly lit with white, red and green. Quiet, fast moving, heading northwest.

If the moon is a basketball, this would be a tennis ball in size. I saw it over the roof af the neighboring building, traveling faster than any plane, silently. It was very bright, with a mix of red, green and regular bright white light. I have never seen anything like this, and it is embedded in my memory. I was born and raised in Seattle, raised a family, and ten years ago moved to Maui, where I habe worked for the historic organization here, doing research. I have excellent eyesight! This sphere was so large and so bright, that I cannot believe that no one else saw it. Many people are outside on Maui evenings, I will watch the newspapers for reports from others.
