Duration:20-30 Minutes
June 17th 2002 21:25 saw ball of light in west-north-west sky for 10-30 minutes.

Looking into west-north-west sky we saw a ball of light. Watched for about 10 minutes, and in that time it appeared to move slightly west. Appeared to have slight red/blue haze around it. I watched to see if it would move or if it was a helicopter, but it was very still. Also that night, there was a very loud boom. I do not know time of boom.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness may have been observing the planet Venus, which is in the western sky at the time indicated. PD))
