|Huge bright light appeared right above my garage while I was looking at the stars. It had smaller white lights on each side, with color
I was sitting in the dark looking at the stars out of my bedroom window. The window faces directly West. Suddenly, right above my garage, an extremely bright white light hit me in the eyes, blinding me. At first I thought it was a helicopter looking for undocumented workers in the fields behind our house. I looked closer and realized that although this object was hovering, it was not like any chopper we usually see daily around here. It was about half the altitude of a normal chopper and it made no noise. It has one very large white light and two smaller ones on each side it. I got the impression of something sloping down to the lights, although I couldn't see any real form. I grabbed for my binoculars, only to remember that they were in the other room. I looked back out the window and noticed smaller lights directly below the large center one, except these were of various colors; red, blue, yellow and green. I then started to slowly move over the top of the house (from WWN to East). I ran to the kitchen window (about 23 seconds) and saw it from the rear about 2 miles past my house. It was a definite triangle of lights. I tried to count and I think it had 6 bright white lights on each side taper in to a series of colored blinking lights. I watched it go due east for about 6 miles, stop make a hard right turn and take off south towards mexico. It was huge! I, of course, then found my camera a binoculars right there in the kitchen. I watched for at least 2 hrs. hoping it would return, but no luck.
