|4:00AM after Thanksgiving in NY - several lights in the sky, one of which was entirely too bright!
I woke up at 4:00 AM to get a glass of water when I saw, what I thought was a really bright star out my window. When I went to lie down, I kept thinking how peculiar it was for the star to be so bright. I went back to my window and with my glasses and notice that the light looked like it was pulsing. It would be bright, and then it would not. So mulling it over I thought, this is really a UFO so I grabbed my camera and zoomed in. My camera is a Sony Cybershot so picture quality is not as good of professional photographer quality. When I zoomed into what I thought was a start, I realized I was gazing at a circular ball of light with the colors of fire (red, blue, yellow). I took note that this light had a pattern which was, after a few minutes, easy to follow. At the end of the red, blue, and yellow the light expanded. When I took the picture I would get a disk in the photo, it looks like a disk of energy. The light would move far away, then it would come back. I think it had to be several miles away in the sky. When I started to look around there were 5 others but not as bright, my camera could not even zoom in that far. I actually when back to bed around 6:30 AM when the light was far away enough that I new it was leaving.
I am 30 yrs old, hispanic, educated with a bachelors in business, I work a full time job, and very credible. This is my 3rd time seeing strange light in the sky, but the first time I got a picture and could verify that it was not just a star.
