Location: Washington, D.C., DC
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Ball of light brighly flashing green and orange.

At around 22:30, I was asleep in my bedroom. My housemate knocked on my door and woke me up, claiming there were strange flashes of light in the sky. We both went outside. As soon as we were outside I observed repeatedly flashing bright white light in the night sky. It looked almost like lightning, however there was no thunder and the light was continuously flashing and lighting up the whole sky.

After about 15 minutes of the repeatedly flashing light, a very large cloud quickly covered the entire sky in a matter of a few minutes. Shortly after the cloud moved in a very large ball of light appeared behind the cloud.

At first it looked like the moon shining through a cloud. I then noticed the moon was actually very far away from this strange light source. The light source then began to move around. It flashed a brilliant green light and then moved around again. Then it flashed a bright orange light and began to move around again. Suddenly there was a huge gust of wind and the object disappeared.
