Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Bright hovering light downtown Austin

I witnessed about 3 miles to the west of I-35 and E Riverside Dr what appeared to me to be an airplane hovering a few hundred feet above the ground.

It was a single bright light that glimmered like a star with red and green and white color.I noticed age about 2 minutes that the light was not moving.

It was too bright to be a star, maybe about as bright as a strong flare.

After about 5 minutes total it started to move away from my location and to the north.

The light never faded as it moved and it did not change altitude. It soon disappeared behind my apartment building and I'm on the 5th floor.

Maybe a helicopter? I think the light was to bright for that to be the answer.
