To Whom it may Concern Saturday May 5th 2012 at roughly 22:00 EST hours i was sitting with my grandson in our family room watching the ball game. I saw out my back windows (facing west) a large bright yellow light. It was on a path to come right over our house, so thinking it was a helicopter i got up and walked out the back door to watch it fly over. Once outside i knew it was not a helicopter because there was no noise – i yelled for my grandson and my daughter to come see what i was looking at.

Points to note: I live in the northwest region of a major metropolitan area. There are famer fields a short distance away (to the west the direction of what i saw) – Also i am northwest of an major international airport and during my sighting i could see a commercial plane off in the distance in the same line of sight that we were looking at. (they were landing from the west that night – flying east on approach) There was not a cloud in the sky it was a beautiful night with a beautiful full moon off to the south.

The large yellow light seemed bigger then what a helicopter or plane light would illuminated in the beginning.( My grandson who is 5 said it was a fire in the sky). The large yellow light then gave way to a green and red light which was decreasing in size. Although it was still coming straight towards us, it was not a perfectly straight line that it travelled. It seemed to move from side to side ever so slightly. The red light was getting smaller and for a few seconds the green light seemed to be a straight line of green light going through the red light. (still not any noise whatsoever).

The green light gave way to only the red light which continued to shrink in size until it was almost out of sight. At this point it changed direction not heading towards us but turned on a 90 degree angle and started heading north.

Now it get hard to explain – the small red dot now seemed to be part of a larger translucent type of oval object that if you were not looking right at you probably would not see. The oval did not glow although it gave off the smallest shade of light – It was a different colour than the night sky, my daughter and i watched it until it went out of sight behind trees.

I do not know what we saw other than to say that i am a keen observer of my surroundings – & i have never seen anything like this before.

Sorry very hard to explain in written text for me.
