White oval ufo seen near Mt. Jumbo.

Walking towards the Rattlesnake Valley from the corner of E Broadway and Van Buren, myself and a friend saw what initially appeared like a helicopter, but I realized very quickly, due to the fact that you couldn't see propellers, that it couldnt be a helicopter.

It was white, oval shape, but it also was very hazy around the object, it had a large orangey red light, and a blue light on the visible side of it.

From our vantage point, we could see that it was well past the 'L' on Mt. Jumbo, which is just over a mile away, but as it would move towards us or away from us, or uoward, its size never changed. We watched it for about 4 or 5 minutes, and then it simply vanished, like a switch turned it off.
