Duration:45 minutes
strange and extremely hypnotizing.Bright red,green,white lights in triangle form.Hovered with sporatic movement.

I know that it was not a star, an airplane, or a helicopter. I first asked my roommate to come and look at it, then I called the police. Initially 2 officers arrived, 10 minutes later a third one showed up. They were all as stunned as I was. I went out side to smoke a cigarette and there it was, a strange hovering light around the size of the moon. It would hover and then move very fast, short distances. Then it would hover again. The police even called the airport to atleast get some kind of explaination, all 3 officers agreed that it was not an airplane, a star, or a helicopter. The airport's explaination was that a wildlife/rescue helicopter was doing a deer count. I have yet to witness a helicopter with obvious red,green,and white lights hover and move so quickly and at such bizarre angles. The lights had obvious color changes,first red,then green, then white. My background.... 24 yr.,white female,with a college education.{no drug use} my roommate has the same background. The other 3 witnesses were police officers.We took video footage.
