A bright colored light flew across the sky faster then any object we had ever seen.

I stepped outside to have a smoke when in the corner of my eye I saw a bright red light progressing slowly across the sky. I turned to look and said to my father, who was right in front of me, “look at that.”

At that moment the light turned green and sped up to an incredible speed. Right before it disappeared behind the house it turned bright white.

When we saw it moving across the sky it left streaks of the colors it changed in it’s wake.

We ran outside to the spot where we thought it might have landed. In the spot that it appeared to move to. We saw what could have been a star, but it was far below all of the other stars and it was blinking several colors. In no apparent order it would turn red, green, blue and white. We watched for approximately an hour and it would move slightly in random directions.

My father is a fairly serious individual and would usually cast off such things. However upon seeing this he was thoroughly spooked as was I. Neither him nor I would normally be so intrigued by such a thing, but upon seeing this neither of us could stop looking. We most definitely saw something inhuman because the object was moving far faster than any human flying aircraft.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witnesses might have observed a meteor, and then focussed on the star, Sirius. Just a guess, given that our experience suggests that a genuine UFO probably would not hover in the sky for an hour. PD))
