Duration:approx. 10 min.
Huge, motionless, multicolored ball of light in tree lines.

My husband was standing out on our porch smoking and saw a huge multicolored ball looking light right above the trees. He took a picture with his phone. It is grainy however, you can see spots all around it that appear to be stars. He said the object was silent, very very bright..much bigger and brighter than the stars around it and it was multicolored. He says it stayed motionless right above the tree line for about 10 mintues. He said he could tell it was huge judging by the size of the stars around it.

Unfortunately, I was still asleep and he did not bother to wake me! I was hoping someone else saw this. The light ball thing he showed me on his phone is soooo bright! It is different than a light bulb or the sunlight! The area is near and around Clements 72 West. Also, object made No sound.
