Location: Bowling Green, KY
Shape: Disk
Duration: 1 hour
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Random flashing lights.Good description.Within 2-3 stories overhead. Saucer with lights and windows.

I saw flashing lights pretty far off in distance. It was flashing randomly, no type of pattern. It would flash rapidly or slowly or not even flash for 10-20 seconds at a time, it was very random. I watched it for about 3-4 minutes moving from one place in the sky to another in a back and forth motion. I ran down stairs to get my camera, which took approximately 30-40 seconds. By the time I got back it was practically above my head. Unfortunately I was unable to get video of the object because I froze in shock watching the object. I did not expect it to be so close. It was about two to three stories overhead and about two closely neighboring houses down. It made no sound and for an object that close and as visible as it was, it was unlike anything else. At this point it hovered slowly in an up and down motion almost like a zigzag. It was in view for about 30 seconds until it went past my roof and above the house. The flashing light was in the middle of the metallic like object. I saw a saucer in shape and it clearly had dark windows all the way around the side I viewed. It was not very big. It was less than 20 ft. wide. I went to the front window of the house to see if it passed by but I saw nothing. About 45 minutes later I looked out the back window again and saw flashing lights in the opposite side of the sky as before. This time it was about 5:15am and it was all over the sky. It moved very quickly and in far distances in a short amount of time, unlike before when it was moving slowly. Almost like it was having its last of fun before the sun came up. About 5:30am the sun was rising and the light became more faint just as the stars did. It was above a tree that has not yet formed leaves so I could see the object as it moved straight down behind this tree and that was the last I saw of it.
