Location: Portland, ME
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright white light hovering near Portland International Jetport. Object turns bright red and silver, then disappears within seconds.

On the night of May 8th, 2007, my friend and I were walking the Fore River Sanctuary Trail. When we crossed the bridge, we noticed a very bright light, which we first assumed was an aircraft. We realized it couldn't have been an airplane due to the fact that it hadn't moved. It was a very bright, constant, white light. The object then turned from white to red, became brighter, and illuminated the sky surrounding it. The object then appeared to "shoot" off into the horizon, far faster than any aircraft I have ever seen.

The object seemed to be hovering to the northwest of the Portland Jetport, most likely over Westbrook or Gorham.
