Light object with red, green, and golden lights changing shape in the Southeastern sky in Newtown, Connecticut.

I was on my back deck when I noticed a circular object in the Southeastern sky with red and green strobe lights. It appeared to be a couple of miles away at a 20º angle. At first glance, I thought it was a plane, but when it didn’t move, I got my binoculars for a better look. What I saw was remarkable. To the naked eye, it appeared that it was an object with lights on it and was stationary. When I looked at it through the binoculars, I saw an object, made of red, green, and golden lights. They jumped around and changed shapes. At first it was circular, then elongated, then it stretched from side to side, then it extended into an arch, zig zagging, spiraling. Back and forth the lights changed shapes. I wondered at that point if my hands were shaking causing this to happen, so I steadied my arms on the deck railing. The lights continued to transform into all different shapes. What was interesting was that the lights were very bright, almost neon in nature. I called for my husband to take a look, and he was perplexed as to what it might be. I don’t know what we saw last night, but it was extraordinary. We watched this for about five minutes, then the clouds rolled in obscuring our view.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witness may have been observing the star, Antares, which is in the SE sky, currently, at approximately 20 degrees angle of elevation. PD))
