|Disk with blinking colored lights
At 7:00 pm I stepped outside with the dog and noticed an orange light glowing just barely above the trees in the horizon over Sanbornton. It was orange for four seconds then turned lime green and went lower than the trees, out of view. I didn't see it again. A few minutes later there was a red and white blinking light coming towards Laconia, crossing over Lake Winnisquam. It looked like a plane, but then the blinking lights appeared to be more than two at a time and jumping around. I got my binoculars and my twelve year old son came out with his new mini-camcorder. He set up to view the plane and see if it could record in the dark. I looked through the binoculars and saw red and white blinking lights flying low over the lake. My son was excitedly trying to get my attention because what he could see on the little video screen was several colored lights on one object, randomly blinking. He taped 28 seconds as the silent object got closer and flew to the right of us and out of our sight over Laconia.
We downloaded the clip to the computer and were able to view it on a larger screen then break it down to see thirty frames per second. Each frame had a different configuration of lights. One frame had a single red light, the next showed several lights including yellow, blue, purple, pink, red, white and green. When played at real time, it was impossible for our eyes to keep up with the colors or speed. When slowed down, the clip shows a disk shaped craft with many blinking lights circling the outer edge.
I noticed that when I looked with and without the binoculars, I only saw red and white lights. The camera lenses were able to capture the colors humans can't see as the lights blinked at such rapid speeds. After taping 28 seconds the object was closest to us and the view screen started showing too much static and was stopped.
