I saw a bright star rapidly changing color in the sky, it was so bright that the other three witnesses, (who are nearly blind,) could see it.

I used binocular glasses to watch the craft. Throughout maybe 12 minutes, I could see it split into multiple crafts, morph color and shape, and shoot another brighter craft outward. The new craft quickly disappeared completely. I used Morse code to send it messages, to which it would often respond with numerous things. I first told it that we are peaceful, and that we would like to see it do something. It quickly blinked very rapidly and brightly after that. Seconds later, the craft that earlier disappeaed came back. It flew close to the ground in a zig-zag pattern. Soon after it once more vanished completely. After that, it went back to flashing and morphing around. I asked it to make a sound, I then heard a noise that sounded like a repetitive "bloop bloop." It stopped after I noticed a light floating behind a nearby tree. At one point it peeked out and flashed a light at me that seemed to resemble the flash on a camera. At this time the other three witnesses had left. I had left when I started to hear a loud ringing noise in multiple directions.

Out of curiosity, I came back a few minutes later and the main craft was completely gone.
