I was standing on my apartment patio on the third floor about 30 ft high. I looked out into the sky and saw what appeared to be a bright star. I realized that it wasn't a star because of the objects slow movement. It didn't have any of the typical characteristic movement patterns of a plane either. I got my sister from inside to come observe with me. She also agreed that it didn't appear to be anything like a plane or anything that she recognized. The object still had a bright iridescent white shine as it slowly moved. As I watched it more, the object seemed to dim in radiance of the white glow being shown, as if the light was being dimmed down. The object seemed to stay in one place and then slowly move in a linear fashion. Not anything like any aircraft. The object then appeared to start flashing different colors. It would flash a bright red, then bright green, bright blue, and yellow and then back to white in no particular order. It seemed like the entire object donned the color that it turned to, much unlike blinking aircraft lights that are separated by wing space. As the object turned different colors it seemed to hover in one place. It would then slowly do a somewhat figure eight pattern or a circular movement pattern and would at instances seemingly accelerate very quickly and then slow back down and then just hover in place. It kept doing this and I went inside after about 20 minutes. I came back out hours later and it was gone.
