Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
Very bright white light, appeared stationary, later moved farther away and changed to orange.

Strange object in the night sky around 7:30 p.m. here in Grand Rapids on 1.14.17.

It looked like a white light that was stationary just above the tree line of our condo on East Paris between Burton and Sparks, the object was very strange as it appeared much brighter and bigger than an airplane headlight.

It did not approach and get bigger but rather just kind of hung in the sky.

An hour later the object appeared that it had traveled farther away but was relatively in the same part of the sky, (South west direction). The odd thing was that the object now appeared orange and not as bright.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect a sighting of Venus. PD))
