Duration:2 minutes
There was a bright hovering object in the midnight sky

We saw what we first thought was an airplane low in the sky then noticed it had very bright white lights surrounding it ..it also had some red flashing lights ..we pulled over to the curb so we could get a better look..it was about 500 feet above us and hovered for about a minute then accelerated and banked to the NE and was gone faster than we could believe ! It emitted no sound which was really very eerie!It honestly looked like a disapearing act! Hopefully, some others were able to see this phenomenon! Left us with a lot of questions!
