|Star-like round object hovers for 20 minutes, then takes off crazy fast.
I went outside to go to my car and saw what looked like a very odd, low-hanging star in the distance. All the stars were out, but this one looked very yellow and seemed to be flickering. I stared at it for about 20 minutes and it appeared to be hovering in place. A plane passed nearby, and this looked nothing like the plane whatsoever. I've also seen helicopters, chinese lanterns, swamp gas and the northern lights before. This was nothing at all like any of those. I was staring and staring, totally mesmerized. I decided to run inside for a minute to grab my phone. I doubted that I could get a good picture as the object was so far away and it was very dark, but I was going to try. I also tweeted out to people on twitter about it, to see if anyone else in my city could see the bright light and if they knew what it might be. When I came back out, I was watching it for maybe 30 seconds and then the light went red.
About 30 seconds later, it became a very bright white light, and then TOOK OFF. It took off FAST. Way faster than I had just seen the plane go. And I mean, WAY, WAYYYYYY faster. It almost seemed at this point as if there were multiple white lights, or kind of like if the object was round and had a bunch of white lights on the bottom in a circle, or if the lights were all around it on the side, and like those lights were rotating extremely fast while the object took off both vertically and horizontally. The lights faded very fast though as the object took off. I looked at the stars again, and they were all just as visible as before. The entire incident took about 30-40 minutes. I think I'm the only one in my city (relatively small) who happened to be outside in the cold weather and looking up at this exact time. It was between 9:30pm to 10:12pm.
