Shape: Light
Duration:1+ hour
Odd light above Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

In the early morning my wife and I watched an odd light in the SE sky above Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We did call KCRG and asked if they could go and look at the light. For over an hour we watched it change colors blinking white, blue, green and red. Its movements were odd and erratic. It would stay in one spot then either slow or fast suddenly shift directions jigging and jagging. At one point it was making circular patterns in the sky. It was just above the horizon: down and to the left of Orions belt. KCRG asked if this may be a drone. This was no drone I am aware of. It was too far away, and lasted too long.

((NUFORC Note: Probably the star, Sirius, in the SE sky, we suspect. PD))
