Location: Flint, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:90 seconds
Observed bright, rapidly flashing light, changing colors, direction and moving with unusual acceleration.

I am a married, 44 year old college educated, business owner. I happened to wake up shortly after midnight and observed through a west-facing window, a very odd single bright rapidly-flashing white light in the distance above the trees.

At first the light appeared stationary, almost like a firework then it moved to the southeast. The flashing was noticeably quick and in a pattern, not like a typical plane.

I woke up my husband who also saw the light through a south-facing window. The color of the light changed from white to a brunt reddish color.

The light was moving at an unremarkable speed when it changed directions and accelerated upward to the northwest out of view.

The window was open but there was no sound associated with the activity. The acceleration of the light was uncharacteristic of any aircraft we have ever witnessed.
