|Bright White,Green and Red lights over Merlin Area
At approx. 8pm on Friday night, My inlaws were traveling north on I-5 in the Merlin area. They noticed a bright light to the west, and thought it to be an incomming aircraft. The light remained steady in brightness, but changed from Red to Green, and at that point, they realized the object was actually moving away from them. The object seemed to continue floating to the west. They continued to observe it for aprox. 10 to 15 minutes. My father in law called me and I observed the object far on the horizon for about 2 minutes before it disappeared. It did not appear to be an airplane or satellite. It travelled quite far to the western horizon before it softly flared out.
