Location: Livermore, CA
Duration: 2 min
Characteristics: The object changed color
|Strange light in the sky over Livermore CA.
I was walking away from a sports practice with my son and several other people.
We saw the object in the western sky at about 45 degree elevation. It appeared to us to not be that far away.
I called the local airport to see if they had gotten any other reports, but they had not.
The object was exibiting a non ballistic flight pattern. Up, down, left, right but primarily moving from south to north.
It was a bright orange color, not blinking. Even though I know alot about planes and hellicopters, I don't know how I would explain this motion.
I am a bit of a skeptic, I don't usually believe in this sort of stuff. The thing that sealed it for me was the fact that the object changed from bright orange to electric blue for a few seconds then back to orange. It did this several times during its transit of the sky which lasted 2 or 3 min. This color change along with the non ballistic flight really puzzled me. I have no idea what we saw.
Some background: I also saw the same thing in the early summer around 10:00pm one evening. No color change that time, but non ballistic flight. My son also told me he and his friends saw the same object several weeks earlier.
