An oval, saucer-shaped object moving slowly with brilliante colors of light flashing.

On Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2003 at 4:15pm cst in Austin, Texas, from my backyard, I saw a flash of light that caught my eye. I looked up at the cloudless sky and saw an object moving slowing in a semicircle. At first it appeared as a star-like point of light. Then it displayed flashes of brilliante colors of light from red, blue, green, yellow and white. I quickly ran into my house to get the binoculars. When I returned outside I was delighted to see that it was still there. Between a few of the colorful flashes I could see the object better. It looked more oval than round but it was saucer-like being overall orange and some black in color. I viewed it for several, good, long minutes then it vanished.
