Witness was at work on the city's east side not far from hwy 41 when he noticed a bright orange light to the east through an open garage door he was working close to. He estimated it was at least 10 to 15 miles away, but the height was hard to judge. "If you stuck your arm straight out, it would have been less than a fingers width away from a tree line that was over a mile away. Probably hundreds of feet from the ground." The light was definitely lower and brighter than any star in the sky that he had ever seen. It was also brighter than a passenger plane flying not quite overhead of where he was, and larger. His first thought was that it was a helicopter with a search light, since it seemed to be stationary, and he figured a bright search light may explain why it looked so big. He watched it for around 3 minutes before he had to walk away for about 10 seconds, and when he returned to see what it was doing it had vanished. He watched for maybe another! minute and it still hadn't returned. That's when he thought maybe it was a UFO. He went to tell a co-worker about it and took care of a few things which took about 10 minutes and went to look again and there was another orange light. This time it was off to the left a bit and a little higher. "I would say at least a mile north of the first light. My co-worker was close by so I called him over to see it." They talked for a couple of minutes about it while they watched it and then it just disappeared. It was like someone just flipped a switch and it was gone. After another 15 minutes or so he went back to look and another light appeared while he was watching in the same place the first one was, except this time it was a deep red. Then this one started ascending higher into the sky very slowly, and after it moved about an inch or so from his perspective, it kind of changed colors back to orange. It stopped after another inch or so and stayed there for several minutes before disappearing. He had forgot to mention that between the first and second light he had seen an object fly from the direction of the lights toward and straight over him to the west. "It didn't appear to have any lights. It looked like it was reflecting the lights from the city. It looked grayish and maybe triangular. It was moving almost as fast as a meteor and over twice as fast as a plane." It was probably several hundred feet from the ground. After the third light he witnessed, he and his co-worker were standing at the garage door when he saw a light that appeared even further in the distance than the original lights. Then a second light appeared to the south and another appeared to the north. All three were slowly moving up and down and changing the intensity of their light. Eventually they disappeared one at a time. Then about 15 or 20 minutes later he was looking again and saw a bright red light blinking very rapidly in the distance for about 10 seconds. All of these lights were definitely hundreds of feet in the air, bri! ghter and larger than any aircraft he had ever seen, moved in ways that he had never seen a regular airplane move, and were not stars or radio towers. He wasn't able to take pictures because it was night and the distances, and there were street lights in the foreground screwing with the focus. Also, the sighting didn't really make me feel any certain way but it did give me good bumps. (MUFON CMS)
