Location: Ithaca, NY
Shape: Sphere
Duration:2 hours on/off
spherical bright light, radiating red, green and white colors, stationary in eastern horizon, then slowly moving south

Around 7pm Monday 11/06 my mom noticed a bright light in the eastern horizon at about 45 degrees. It seemed to remain in the same location for about 10 minutes. I came home and she told me to take a look at this. I got binoculars and saw a sphere shaped object radiating flashing lights of white, red, and green. At times the sphere seemed to move in sometimes a circle or back and forth. There was some cloud cover and sometimes it could be seen through the clouds, sometimes not. I watched it on and off for about an hour and by then it had moved a little higher and more south. Soon, some air craft (jets?) I could see the contrails headed towards the light. There wear eventually 3-4 jet craft going towards it. The light then disappeared behind some cloud cover. I checked about a half hour later and did not see it.
