Posted: 6/12/2008
Location: Ferrisburgh, VT
Shape: Light
Duration: 7 minutes
Characteristics: The object changed color
Very bright light in sky that turned orange before dimming out

We saw a bright, white light hovering over a mountain in the east from a view at our house. The light was so bright that it caught our attention from inside our house (we have windows that look out towards the view). Airplanes normally travel north/south in our area. The light was white then dimmed and rebrightened to orange. It was like a huge spotlight in the sky shining straight horizontally towards us. My husband said he could see it was going down vertically very slowly. When it became orange, it shined for a minute or so and then dimmed out until it was completely gone. It did not reappear.
