Location: Saratoga Lake, NY
Shape: Oval
Duration:12min
Observed scintilating oval object rise over treeline at the south end of lake,move left,right and hover then descend below treeline only to pop back up several seconds later. It then slowly descended below tree- line and did not reappear again while we were there{10:30].

This object was too far away to get any detailed data on but it was not a conventional aircraft.The color changes were subtle and fleeting. It was a pale gold color with flashes of a deeper gold and occasionally pale green to my eye. I'm presuming that there was only one object as we lost sight of it for about 10 seconds behind the trees. This is a typical sighting for this area. These craft have been observed here for several years now. There is a research facility a few miles south of the lake over which I suspect these craft are. I am seeking a vantage point over this area and will then be able to triangulate the objects to see where they are coming up from and perhaps get a closer look and better tape and stills.
