Shape: Unknown
Duration:1 hour
We were in our bedrooms earlier tonight when my cousin comes running downstairs all scared and disturbed of what he had seen. During all of his babel my mother and I decided to play along, to our amazement we where left perplexed. I saw a pulsing object in the western sky that at first I thought to be a planet until it moved. I swore that my eyes were playing tricks on me but I saw what I saw.

This object turned red,green,white, then it would emit a pulsing a sapphire color twice every rotation. That was very interesting and unexplainable. After about 1/2 hour or so it split into 2 different individual pieces, it seemed to have fallen towards earth. This piece was different it hovered down then faded from a light bluish color to a white then it faded to black like it was concealing itself or burning out. My mother, cousin, and I still are not aware of what we saw but it wasn't something that would be experienced on a daily basis.

A concerned watcher of the sky.
