Duration:5 minutes
U.F.O. over or very near Dobbings Airforce Base in Marietta, GA. with multi color changing lights.

n early Sunday morning, May 5th, around 4:00 AM, I witnessed a u.f.o; this object was absolutely not a commercial or private airplane. The movement of this vehicle and the color scheme of it's lights ruled out any possibility of man made classification unless top secret. I was star gazing for a couple of hours prior to this experience. A friend of mine was also looking at stars and planets; both of us were using telescopes. Around 4:00 or so, a bright round object north west of my location caught my attention. The area and placement of this immediately struck me as very unusual. I grabbed my binoculars and focused in on it. The craft seemed to be changing colors in sort of a loop fashion; repeating. At first, this color dancing thing led me to believe I was looking at a certain object that I've seen many times prior with similar color change pattern. After just a few seconds I realized this object was not anything I'd seen based on the intense colors being emitted in a pattern or loop and also how it was moving.

I feel the object was more round than anything else; the color behavior held my attention greatly.

Please let me know if anyone else reported a sighting on this date or any other over this area I will email a picture of my viewpoint and where the u.f.o. was exactly.

P.S. I'm a 31 year old male native to Atlanta,Georgia. I have a degree in network administration.

I Iive on the 18 floor(top) of a building in "Buckhead". The view is spectacular.

I can see the downtown Atlanta area plus,4 other counties. I've spent many nights star gazing on this roof and I've never seen anything even remotely close to this.
