Location: Naperville, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Intense display of stationary light in 3 phases of color shifting

During a thunderstorm with intense lightning, looking in the southern sky over the naperville police station i witnessed a strange object stationary in the dark sky. Very noticible and very intense, it was a growing pulse of white light, that after about 9 seconds shaded to a bright sea green flaring into a dark blue eerie glow about 20 seconds later, the event ended with a shimmering type display, of dark blue light vanishing without a trace. I at first thought it was a meteor, but this object was not moving and i have never witnessed a blue colored meteor. Id estimate the magnitude of the display of light to be about a 2 or 3, very bright. Unfortunatley i failed to have my camera :( ((name deleted))
