Brightly lit object floating silently near tall trees.

On my way to bed , I opened up the curtains and to my great surprise, the otherwise dark, middle-of-night- scenery with very tall trees had a very brightly lit object floating behind the trees, all quiet. I wondered right away" What is that?" We live on the first floor in a 6 -story building. The bright object was motionless on about 4;th level of the building to the south from our view, directly behind the trees. It was, in my estimate less than 1/2 mile away from our house. Then the lights started dimming and a dome- shaped object came into view with magnificient lights around it as if it had a " belt around it", red, white and orange lights. Then a few minutes later it changed its look and was the same dome-shape but only yellow, small lights around it as if decorated" in a way.It was quite stunning and beautiful. It seemed to glitter at various spots. It slowly moved lower ( further into the distance, to south), barely noticeable movement and all quiet- it would become all very brightly lit up again, almost pulsating slightly its light and then back to dimming its light and showing detailed, smaller lights glimmering in the total dark night sky.

A helicopter flew by a little over an hour after I first noticed it and after about 13 minutes from that, it very , very slowly disappeared from the view.

((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

Dear Peter, I thank you very much for having my UFO sighting report published on your website. However , I must admit that I felt slightly ridiculed as someone had written his own evaluation of what I saw on that report by adding the following lie to it " possibly Jupiter in the southern sky" .

The trees where the UfO was silently floating are 30 ft away from my house! One cannot put a planet in those trees! The ufo was directly behind the trees, moving and changing its appearance. I saw the perfectly bright lights in detail and its pulsating lights. Planets do not move, display lights and change appearance. This was a moving object not Jupiter. I feel slightly insulted by this odd addition to my Report. It should not be there. Best,

((END ADDENDUM))

((NUFORC Note: The witness may be correct, but we believe it is the rare UFO that hangs around for an hour and a half. PD))
