Illuminating light surveys the North Dakota Capitol, Bismarck

The first night, a very strange light that illuminated many colors from the color spectrum appeared around the outskirts of the city. It remained stationary for about 15 mins and proceeded to circle around the outskirts. All in the same time it would stop for no longer than 5 mins and proceed to circle, moving at an varied speeds. This happened for about an hour, untill it began moving towards the center of the city; near the capitol.

I've been a star gazer for most of my existance, and have never seen an object move in the matter this one did.

The colors seemed to circle around the craft/object.

Every once in a while it would disappear then emerge in another spot, stationary.

In more than one instance, it looked as though there was a light that would almost pop out of it then circle the craft and return back inside.

Then out of nowhere; two more showed up and the three of them made a line almost like orions belt, and began to move in slow pace towards the outskirts once again.

I watched this for another hour or so; then the crafts simply pulled up and then moved in a very quick manner away and out of sight.

The craft has been seen for the past 2 days, and i've turned alot of people into the idea of simply watching it and observing the movements to validate my own sanity.

In all the descriptions by other people i know, its something they've never seen in the night sky before; and in some cases it terrifies them.
