Occurred : 12/31/2000 21:00 (Entered as : 01/1/01 21:00)
Reported: 1/14/2001 21:39
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Anchorage, AK
Shape: Changing
Duration:4-6 hours
We could observe red lights dancing across the underside red lights were very bright and very active.

We were at my girlfriends house in the loft on the third story enjoying new years when I looked out the back window and observed a rounded triangular shape floating above the hill at the top of Alatna Dr in Anchorage. I showed my friends and we watched it with a pair of binoculars as well as a small telescope. The object seemed to change shape or rotate so that we (my friends and I) could observe red lights dancing across the underside of it. The red lights were very bright and very active. The rest of the object appeared to be a shiny black color and looked as though it was changing shape from a rounded triangular shape to a mass of three small orbs. While in the later form it was more difficult to see the red lights. The object was moving back and forth across the hill and at one point seemed to get closer to us as it appeared to get bigger and brighter then it returned to it's previous possition moving along above the hill. All of this took place over the course of aprox five hours, during which time we called the Anchorage international airport, Elmindorf AFB, and the FAA. The object eventually moved back behind the hill and was not observed again.
