Traveling East at aprox 30 mph at aprox 1000 ft altitude and aprox 1000 ft from me.

Object was flat disk(like an Alka-Seltzer)with a globe on top.The globe would open about 45 degrees at aprox 5 sec intervals.The globe seemed to be internally illuminated.It was completely silent.The disk was aprox 20 ft in diameter and globe a little smaller in circumference.The disk was a incredable rose color with with thin blue band circleing the top.(Disk was aprox 5 or 6 ft thick)The globe was a sort of honey-yellow-cream color.I have NEVER seen such beautiful colors.They were not bright but just a little brighter than photo-luminence.I tried to get it to stop,it ignored me completely.This object will haunt me forever.
