We were driving extremely early in the morning, when I looked up at the sky to watch the stars. I noticed an unusually bright looking one. It had bright green and red alternating hues to it. And white light. But it was about four times larger than any other star in the sky. Even the North star.

I am a high school student from a smaller city, not completely rural. I get great grades, and I am very normal, whatever that means. The Unidentified Flying 0bject (-I want to specify that it was unidentified, that means that I'm not calling it a flying saucer,) appeared to be a little closer than a star, but far enough away to look light a star at first glance. It looked four times larger than an actual star, and it was twice as bright. It has three colors to it. Mostly white with red and green flashing on it alternately. I watched it for about a half an hour while riding in a car. I gave up after a while.
