Shape: Unknown
Duration:5 minutes
Random flashing multicolored lights, with one spotlight, shining down onto my house.

Standing outside in my garden, I noticed a light on the horizon. It was red at the beginning, but after a few minutes, it got brighter as it approached and resolved into a multicolored profusion of lights.

The event lasted about 5 minutes, and during the last 30 or so seconds, the collection of multicolored, randomly flashing lights stopped directly over my house, which was about a hundred feet from the garden. It was dark, so I couldn't discern the shape of whatever it was, just a bunch of randomly flashing multicolored lights.

It appeared to be about 100 feet above the house, and if I had to guess based on the cluster of lights as an indicator of size, I would say that it was about 20 feet wide.

Anyway, as it stopped over my house, a spotlight shone down from it onto the house. I must emphasize that it made no noise at all during the entire time, even when it was almost directly overhead.

When the spotlight appeared, I panicked and ran into the house. The person who I was standing with outside watching it followed me after about 15 more seconds. After I had calmed down some, we both went back outside and it was gone.
