Shape: Other
Duration:25 Minutes
Object seen in western sky stationary at 7:00 o'clock position from the Moon. Sky was light blue as the Sun was already behind the Mountains. Object was round and white with center larger and brighter then Mars sighting at 23:00. A white aurora surrounded it with two pulsating points. If the object were a clock the points would be at 10:00 and 2:00. The points grew short then long (At first I thought this might be a new two tailed comet). I took my view finder off of my telescope and observed that the object was divided into three colors. The left edge was purple, the center was lime green, and the right was an orange/yellow color. Couldn't utilize my telescope due to the Tripod being attached to our Jet Ski. As we continued for our Arizona destination, all inside the truck kept observing it. At this time it was fully dark. Small cloud formations were seen moving under the object at various intervals, until it just disappeared.
