Shape: Light
Duration: 30 min
Characteristics: The object emitted beams, The object changed color
green spotlight and 3 lights

Driving south on Hwy 83, we were north of Bismarck. Sky had just gone dark, so the sky was slightly light. There was a skinny storm cloud stretching across the sky- you could see the whole perimeter of it.

I was watching it closely because the tail end appeared to be trying to drop a funnel cloud. Then I saw green light shining down. I thought it had to be some strange lightening, but there was no other lightening in the sky. It was shining through a spot in the clouds exactly like a spot light. It was clearly very green in color. We tried to capture it on cell phone camera, but it would not show up. When we watched the video the screen flashed white a couple times.

That was probably about ten miles north of Bismarck on hw 83.

On approach to Bismarck we saw three amber/orange/red colored lights above town. They would move around independently. I thought they moved like a fly. Sometimes they would sort of fade away...then light up again on a different end of town. They were more difficult to see from in town, but we still saw them and again tried to take a video, but the phone would not go onto video mode.

People were obviously looking at the lights from their vehicles too.

I would really like to know what this is about. I searched the internet for reports of it, and found this website.
