Shape: Unknown
Duration:15-20 min
brilliant white, red, blue, green light hovering for 20 minutes, then droping in elevation w3/ out the light ever geting dimmer

We wre smoking on the back deck of mt girlfriend's apt, and I noticed a "very bright star" and mentioned it to her. She said that its a plane, and I was very doubtfull that was the case due to the brightness of the light and the elvation. The only light on a plane that is that bright is the taxi light, and the elvation was not coducive to a landing pattern. This object was not mooving as fast as a plane would if it was landing, flying towards or away from us. My reference was the fact that this object's light was equally intense through the whole sighting, the light did dissapear then returned several times while keeping the same position in the night sky. It was just hanging in the skly several hudred feet above and few miles southwest of the dane county airport. My girlfriend and I were watching the light and I'd begun to think that this was just A low flying plne traveling away from us at an angle that made it appear to not move at all. I was in the navy for a while in the late 90's as an A.E. stationed in Lemoore Ca., and have seen alot of aircraft flying at night. This was like nothing I've ever seen. The object would dim out then come back just as bright as before, when looking at it through my girlfriend's digital camera " the stillframe side and magnified it appeared to change color as aposed to the white light shutting off, it would change to deep red, blue, and green. The object would also shoot multi colored beams of light out of the top of the object. The "beams" gave me the impression that ther was more to the object than we could see in the night. The object started to move lower in elevation not losing any brilliance to the light, and it would move side to side, we went outside to see more, watching for about 1 half of an hour.
