I was on vacation in puerto rico in the town of dorado when one night while driving through the golf course on 02 24 08 at aprox. 2120hrs i notice a bright white light in the sky, at first I thougt it was star or a planet but when I rolled my window down to get a better look it appeared to be sitting right ontop some low clouds and also it lit up the clouds around it so I pulled over my car and started to stare at it still thinking maybe its a planes headlights but it was not moving it just stood sitting on top of clouds with that glow of white light,lighting the surrounding clouds,then the ball of white light with that intense glow began to move straigth up at first it moved very slow but then it started to pick up speed and as it rose up it began to dim out but when it began to pick up speed going straight up it disappeared straight up into space but before it disappeared it was the size of star at which point the now tiny object changed colors white to red to blue then nothing it was gone it looked to me it went straight to space. this incident tooked place in puerto rico in the town of dorado I saw the object while driving through the embassey suites golf course at aprox 2120 hrs. because i looked at the clock in the car after incident. I am just recently retired from the new york city dept. of correction where I was a correction officer for 20 yrs. please inform me if any one else has reported this incident or something similar.
