Location: Palm Desert, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 + hours
We were in our garage and looking south over the Santa Rosa Mountains a bright light was hovering at a great distance it appeared to have red, blue and green lights rotating. we looked around and found there to be 5 other similar objects in different locations in the sky each displaying different lights in a circular motion. first red then green then blue. I got my digital camera out and took a picture of the night sky there was a full moon and was able to capture two images one shows up green and the other blue. when I pointed my camera at the objects and zoomed in they each appeared to bob up and down on the camera screen. I was not able to capture any stars on camera for comparison so these objects were much brigher and had colors. planes were flying by so we knew they were not planes and when i came out 2 hours later from the initial sighting the lights over the mountains were gone but the other lights were still in the sky. the lights appeared to move in an oval direction around the center but the objects were very far away from us and couldn't tell except that they were changing colors. my husband, myself and our daughter all saw the objects as well as my daughters boyfriend. we are college educated and teach middle school. my daughter is graduating from college and her boyfriend is a manager. I believe in ufos but my husband is the biggest non-believer until last night.

((NUFORC Note: The objects are not inconsistent with twinkling stars, but that is a guess. We will contact the witnesses again to inquire whether the objects are still visible.))
