Reported: 5/24/2014 8:48:26 PM 20:48
Posted: 6/4/2014
Location: Ann Arbor, MI
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1.5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
unusual stationary lights seen at night near Ann Arbor, MI 5-24-2014

*Might* have been a helicopter. BUT lights and movement quite unusual if so: 4 vertical red lights + very bright blue light in the middle and to the right of the red vertical lights, blinking in an ON-pause-ON-OFF repeating pattern, each ON about 1.5 seconds, the pause about 1/10 sec, the OFF about 1/4 sec.

Size of lights/craft were roughly size of fingernail on man's pinky finger held at arm's length.

Lights/craft were stationary for more than a minute... then object moved horizontally about 1.5 x the width of a man's fist at arms length, then stopped abruptly, then slowly descended to below tree top level over the course of about 10 seconds, when sighting was lost.

Lights/craft was approximately 30 degrees elevation from the horizon, viewed in a southeast direction from northeast Ann Arbor, about 120 degrees southeast, measured clockwise from magnetic north.

No sound was heard, but could have been masked by nearby highway noise.

Movement of lights/craft appeared to be very precise.
