SEEN STATIONARY OBJECT IN S.W. SKY. OBJECT DID NOT MOVE, HOVERED FOR MORE THAN 30 MIN. IN EXACT LOCATION. WHITE,RED BLUE-GREEN LIGHTS APPEARED TO ROTATE OR PULSE.LAST NIGHT WHILE ON MY DECK I
WHILE SITTING ON MY DECK LAST NIGHT I NOTICED AN OBJECT HIGH IN THE SW SKY. AT FIRST THINKING IT TO BE A DISTANT AIRPLANE BUT NOTICED THAT IT WAS NOT MOVING IN ANY DIRECTION. I GOT MY SON TO COME OUT AND LOOK, HE ALSO WAS QUITE CURIOUS AS TO WHAT IT COULD BE. HE WENT NEXT DOOR AND GOT OUR NEIGHBOR. THE THREE OF US WENT OUT FRONT FOR A BETTER VIEW WITH HIS BINOCULERS. ALTHOUGH IT WAS QUITE DISTANT WE COULD CLEARLY MAKE OUT A BRIGHT WHITE LITE WITH A RED LIGHT, BLUE, AND GREEN LITES EITHER ROTATING OR PULSING. HIS WIFE CAME HOME FROM WORK AND WATCHED IT WITH US, THEN THE NEIGHBOR AND TWO CHILDREN FROM ACCROSS THE STREET CAME TO WATCH IT AND ALL WERE AMAZED. MY SON CALLED HIS FRIEND AND HE REPORTED SEEING (2) OBJECTS LIKE THIS IN THE WEST SKY, OUR VIEW WAS BLOCKED BY THE MANY TREES WE HAVE AROUND US. EVENTUALLY WE COULD NO LONG SEE THE OBJECT DUE TO THE EARTHS ROTATION AND ALL THESE TREES. I AM 46 YRS. OLD, MY SON IS 26. NON OF US WERE DRINKING, ETC. ALL OF US THAT WI! TNESSED THIS LAST NIGHT AGREED THIS WAS NO AIRPLANE OR SATILITE OR FALLING STAR - WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK. MY NEIGHBOR CALLED THE AIRPORT AND THEY SAID THEY SHOWED NOTHING ON RADAR.
