Location: Greece, NY
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:still going
cylindrical shaped object, due west in western NY sky, revolving green, red and white lights...

I went outside for a cigarette at about 11:15 pm, I always star gaze and as I was observing the beautiful night sky (uncompromised by the city lights out here) I noticed one star was twinkling a bit more then the other’s. As I watched it I realized that there was a ring of lights; green, red, and white that were swirling around it.

I ran inside to grab my low grade binoculars which offered only a small increase in size to the object. I could see it wasn’t saucer shaped but rather cylindrical or barrel shaped almost swelling in the center where the lights were.

Normally this would have been the “fools gold” of UFO’s eventually revealing itself to be a plane when it changed direction. This I stayed and watched for the better part of a half an hour. It did not move, or change its position in the sky. It stayed a consistent level on the horizon at about 35-34 degree’s due west.

This is definitely no plane, no star, no planet, and no satellite. Which is the normal checklist for any rational person to run down when distinguishing anything to be unidentified.

((NUFORC Note: Star?? PD))
