I first noticed the object (only 1 object) on 10/11/08 - 10/13/08 between 8:30pm and 9:30pm. The object was sphere shaped and changed colors (blue, red & white). It moved rapidly up and down and from left to right sometimes it got much brighter. The background was the night sky. It was located in the southeastern sky from 10/14 through 10/15.

I didn't see the object on Thursday (10/16/08--probably because it was raining).

The object (only 1 object) was seen again on Friday (10/17/08) and looked to be in the northeast sky and the object is described as the one above. The time it was seen was approximately 11:45pm -1:20am.

The object was seen tonight (10/18/08)this time there were (2) both were located in the northern sky but one was further to the left than the other. The same shape, colors, brightness, up and down, from left to right and the erratic and rapid movement. This one was witnessed by my son.

All sightings were seen at night. I don't know if it could have been a weather balloon but it was something that didn't move like an airplane or helicopter.
