The sighting happend in the front of my neighbors house,everyone was outside and we were all celebrating new years eve.My neighbors dad called out to everyone to look up at the sky.Everyone there looked and immediatley seen what he was pointing out.It was a large orange/yellow light that was heading to our south.The light was brighter than anything out in the sky and looked to be traveling at a low altitude,about a bit higher than the avergage passenger jet travels.It was also traveling at a very slow speed.Everyone confirmed that we were all witnessing the same thing.I noticed sparks faling down from the object that dissaperred after about 2 seconds.The object made no sound.My neighbors dad was able to get binoculars and he said that it was spinning and had some sort of shadow.The object then curved towards our east and slowly blinked into nothing,it then blinked on and off a few more times then dissappered.Im not saying it was aliens but this was something very strange.
