|Loud aircraft with bright colored lights buzzes my neighborhood.
On 10-23-13 at approximately 18:00 hours, I was testing a telephoto lens outdoors with my camera, taking video footage of a passing commercial airliner, when I heard an approaching craft equipped with numerous lights. I videoed the craft as it buzzed my position. A row of lights were arrayed on what appeared to be the leading edge of the craft; those lights were colored , in the following order from left to right: light-green, white, orange, white, and orange. As this craft was about to pass over my position, the center, orange light turned red, then back to orange, in a very short period of time, yet not what I would call blinking. Above the center light were two, closely spaced, horizontal orange lights ; these lights also changed colors , changing from orange to red and green. The shape was not discernable, but the first impression I got was that this was a propeller driven or turbo-prop airplane at full throttle, that was agressively buzzing quite low over my neighborhood.
