I am currently observing this object right now. Is often distance I can clearly see Venus to the upper left of this object the subject has been what appears to be in a stationary position for what I have been observing for some 55 plus minutes now and also changed colors the white light disappeared it when black for about three to four maybe five seconds then reappeared as a red orange Hue color and has remained a white color sense I can clearly see Venus off in the background this object is reflecting light on top of the clouds and his definitely in our atmosphere not in outer space this event still going on currently it is 7:30 p.m. eastern time this is a serious report, it cannot be Venus Venus's light is not that big and not that bright and despite all of that Venus is light would not turn off and remain off black in the sky for 5 plus seconds and then reappear with a clearly visibly change in the color of light from a white bright light to a red orange and then the light went off again for another three to five seconds and then reappeared with the white light again this is not Venus I know Venus looks like Google Sky Maps is showing Venus and it's showing it exactly where it is in the picture that I'm about to send you it shows it to the upper left of this object this object is definitely in our atmosphere above the clouds right now

((NUFORC Note: Witness provides a high-quality photo, which strongly suggests to us that the object is Venus. PD))
