|A object appeared to hover over Hammond LA, the object changed colors the object was disc shaped
A neighbor came by to tell me that the International Space Station was visible, he pulled out his telescope and we took a look, on the opposite end of the sky approximately at a 2:00pm position in the sky there was a flickering object in the sky, my neighbor knows his stuff, he said it was not a planet or star. The light visible with the naked eye appeared redish or green or orange at points. We tried to focus on the object from the telescope and it appeared to have a darkish center. I went and got my camera, a Canon 30D with an attached 70-200mm lens. I took some photos of the object and some of a bright star to compare. The photos certainly didn't match. I caught in photos the object changing shades of color, red, orange, green were three colors I captured. The object appeared to be disc like. I still couldn't get too close with that lens so I added an extender to the lens making it 400mm. I saw the object as cigar shaped lights, I thought it was camera shake, so I took pictures of a star again to compare, the star picture was circular this was not. I appeared the object was possibly facing sideways sometimes and other times the bottom or top of the object appeared visible. I couldn't myself beleive what I was seeing I would certainly be interested in an explanation. What led me to write here was that I saw a news report of a U.F.O. in London that was spotted by an airline pilot from 40-miles out, the pilot concluded the object was a mile wide. the shape of what I saw seems to be comparable so I thought I'd share the sighting. The object was still visible when I came in to write this, I took well over 200 photos of the object.
