A hovering light in the sky that was too big and bright to be a star or planet, and moved slowly in various directions.

((NUFORC Note: Sighting of Venus in eastern sky?? It is very prominent, currently, at this time of morning. PD))

My brother and I were driving home from Wal-Mart at 4:04 in the morning. While on the off-ramp leading to the road back to our house, we looked up at the sky and noticed a very large yellowish-white object in the sky, too big and bright to be a star. While we were stopped at the red light at the end of the off-ramp, we also noticed it was moving slowly to the left. Since planets do not move that quickly from a point of view on Earth, we also knew it wasn't a planet. When viewed with the naked eye, we even noticed wing-shaped protrusions. I though it looked like a phoenix.

When we finally arrived home, we could no longer see the object through the tall trees, so we had to walk down the road to view the craft with a pair of binoculars. We stood there for 20-30 minutes watching the craft. We noticed that it had a flashing red light on its underside, and had a faintly visible flashing red dot moving around it. We are not sure whether or not this was another craft, but if it is, we believe the larger craft is a mother ship. The large craft also had a starburst light pattern around it, which did not twinkle, indicating that this was definitely not a star. While we watched it, it stayed still for the majority of the time, but every now and then, it would noticeably move to the left, to the right, up a little, and further away...and at one point, closer to us. It also occasionally changed shape.

We walked back to the house at about 4:30, and noted that it was much higher up in the sky now; we could see it over the treetops while standing next to the house. It was also moving much more frequently, and slightly more quickly. At approximately 4:56, I ran into the house to wake my mother up to show her the craft. At approximately 5:20, after my mother and brother had gone back into the house, I noticed that the red dot that was flying around the object had flown into the object, and a dim blue light flew out in its place. The craft is still out there right now.
