Location: Des Moines, IA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Bright white turning red/orange close to ground then disapearing by des moines airport.

I witnessed a bright white sphere shaped object descend overhead heading west at a very fast speed which led me to believe it was an aircraft coming in for landing.

It then stopped and descended straight down like a helicopter doing a combat landing but was a very bright light with no flashing lights or sound. The light then flashed bright orange and yellow about 20 feet above a field and then was no longer visible.
