Around 1:30 am March 23 I was walking past my hall window on my way to bed when I noticed how bright the moon was. I stopped to look out at the night sky and I noticed a twinkling bright light in the sky that was much larger than the stars. I thought it might be a plane or planet but its movement, size and the blinking multi-colored lights suggested otherwise. I watched it for about 45 min. The lights were blinking from side to side and were red, white, and what might have been green, blue or purple. It was hard to tell what the colors were as the object was pretty far away but they were clearly multi-colored and extremely bright. I steadied myself against the wall and put a finger on the window because I couldnít tell if it was moving or not at first. My finger was on the window just under the object and as I watched, it moved in all directions. It went left, right, side to side, and diagonal and at times got closer and farther away. It seemed to be just hanging out in one particular area of the sky but was moving around in that area. I have noticed this object before in the same spot as much as a year ago and didnít really pay much mind to it. I also saw it following night around the same time but this time I saw it more clearly. It seemed slightly closer.
While I was watching it on the first night I saw something else. It was a glowing orange thing that appeared to be much closer and larger though it was hard to place exactly where it was in the sky as it happened very quickly. It appeared out of nowhere, accelerated and disappeared into thin air. All I saw of it was the orange glow and the tail that seemed to form when it accelerated. It was either moving too fast for me to see after it accelerated, or it just disappeared, I canít say which, but this object was just over the tree tops and was very large. Far too large to be a comet or something like that and it was moving in an upward arc. I would have never seen it had I not been watching the sky already. I had a clear view of the sky in front of where it appeared and it really just seemed to come from nowhere.
I am a 25 year old college student and mother of one. I have never seen a UFO before and frankly didnít think I ever would but when I saw this object I knew it couldnít be man made just by the way it was moving. It was really pretty startling to see how it moved and I have never seen anything like it before. It was high enough in the sky that it would have been easily overlooked. I also noticed on the second night, closer to 2 am, that whenever a car happened to drive by on my street the object almost seemed to follow it with a light, as though it were watching the people below. This could have just been my eyes getting tired but it really looked like the lights on the craft were pointing in the direction of my street whenever a car would pass and the object seemed to move around more. It seemed to be more active when cars passed, almost as if it were trying to get their attention.
Neither the blinking object or the orange object made any sounds that i could hear and there was no smoke or anything like that following the orange object. I was unable to tell the shape of the blinking object because all I could make out were the lights. The second night it looked closer but it was a slightly cloudy night and the object seemed to be in a clouded or hazy area.
