A light above Redding, Ca

At 03:00hr on 08/17/00 I saw a light in the sky over Redding Ca. that was moving in an erratic fashion. The speed, direction, and movement changed at irregular intervals. The color of the light seemed to change from white to red. I tryed to report this to the local police, but they said that they couldn't see any thing. From the city of Redding you probably wouldn't be able to see it because of the city lights. I was in the foothills above Redding, not being affected by the city lights.

((NUFORC Note: The report seems reminiscent of a twinkling star report, to us. We do not know whether the witness means to state that it was visible for 3.5 hours, or 3.5 minutes. We will check. PD))
