Location: New York City (Queens), NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: The object changed color
Sphere coming out from the Moon

It came out from the left side of the moon(full Moon);it came down as if it was coming towards me;it stopped;by then,I could see colors changing in it(it went from white to yellow,orange,red,and back to white.All of a sudden,after being inert for a few seconds,it started moving in a circular or oval motion.After perhaps 3 or 4 times around,it travelled up to the right,away from the Moon and obviously from Earth;I noticed it started to reduce in size.Finally,my wife came out of the house(I called her as soon as the sphere stopped);I pointed to it;she remainned skeptical even after I explained everything I saw before she came out.Throughout the years I have seen quite a few pictures that are very similar to that sphere but,as far as seeing and experiencing something like that night,never again.I tend to believe that a lot of these sightings might be of the"Angelical"type.Then again,it is only a speculation,and it really bothers me that there is so much documentation,and most of it gets trashed as hoaxes or allucinations.I remain faithfull to the fact that one day soon,We will all now about this U.F.O. enigma a lot more.
