Location: Martiez, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:1.5 hrs
Seen colorfull, unusual moving star near the earths atmosphere.

It appeared to be a star that looked like the Planet Veines with flashing colored lights. As I was star gazing I noticed this star to move in short quick moves repeatedly stopping and pausing still between each short quick swift move. The pauses lasted about 30 to 45 seconds. This was very unusual to me so I continued to watch it for aprox 1.5 hrs. When making its moves, it would instantaneously changed directions from left to right or up and down moving in straight lines. It also moved in half circles. It gradually worked its way in a northern direction. When I looked at it with binoculars, it was mostly fuzzy and blurred from the bright colors. After focusing the long-range binoculars the best I could, I made out a few physical characteristics. The illuminated rainbow colored panels making up the diameter of the object and most of the height. The colors slowing rotated around the object. This was not a star, with out a dought, this was a solid mass object near the atmosphere. I'm assuming it was just outside the earth's atmosphere. The colored lights which appeared to be panels where just bright enough to blur out the rest of the shape. The position and placement of the colored panels made up the horizontally sliced cone shape that I could best make out. Were there any other reports on this ???? please reply..... Im must get some conformation about it before I'll tell to many people. I’m having trouble getting anyone to return my calls. (UFO agency's, air ports haven't called back) WAS THIS A SATILITE????????? Please reply

((NUFORC Note: Same witness as for preceding report. The description is consistent with what a person staring at a twinkling star will report. PD))
