Location: Reno, NV
Shape: Changing
Duration:40 mins
Craft changing color and direction over Reno,NV.

My wife and I were on our way back into Reno driving on I-80 West bound at about 630pm. My wife looked up and saw a strange light in the sky and said it looked to close to be a star and it was not a plane because it didn’t not have any flashing lights on the bottom. About the same time I looked up it changed color from white to red and seemed to change direction because the shape went from Round to Oblong.

After watching it change color and shape for about five minutes we noticed a low flying plane coming quick from the opposite side of the craft. As the plane got closer to the craft it was as if someone turned a light switch off because the light from the craft was gone except for a real strange glow emitting from the craft. My wife and I thought it just disappeared and thought the strange sighting was over. As the plane descended and disappeared over Reno the light came back as if a switch was hit again and was closer and brighter than before.

My wife and I continued to watch from the road for a total of about 40 mins and we could see the light pulsing and move from one spot to another with speed faster than any aircraft we have ever seen. This craft seemed to descend and ascend repeatedly and go from North to South. As we watched the craft it seemed to change color many times and continued into the sky north until it was completely out of sight.
