Location: Butte, MT
Shape: Changing
Duration:1.5 hours
One large and several smaller objects that blinked red, white, green , blue and danced like snakes, all larger than other stars.

A large bright light hovered above Timber Butte to the southwest. It changed shape like a jellyfish to triangle with red lights around it and gyrated like a snake when looking at it through binoculars. 4 of us also saw a smaller object but larger than the stars to the left and higher that blinked red, green, blue white and also appeared like a dancing snake.

Between these were 3 smaller lights in a row that hovered, then later disappeared. Several other lights were high in the sky with colored lights. They were larger than the Big Dipper that we could see above us.

After an hour the large light moved to the northwest and hovered for a few minutes before disappearing. Then 2 red blinking lights appeared in the western sky and moved slowly south one behind the other until they went behind the hill. No planes or helicopters flying at the time. 5 witnesses total to this event.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and found her to be sincere about her sighting. We encouraged her to observe the night sky, on the next clear night, to see whether she might see something similar to what she had seen on the first night. PD))
