Shape: Changing
Duration: 2 hours
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
My wife looked out the window at around 11:30 PM. and saw a light in the distance to the west over Manhattan. At first we thought it was a plane, but it was not. It hovered in the distance slightly moving or shifting position. It was not a helicopter either. It was just one light that seemed to spin or rotate while changing colors from white to blue and red, often changing shape as well. Or pulsing, and blinking. Then we went outside to watch it and I measured it's shifting against the buildings. We followed it further until about 1:45 AM, it was still hovering above the city but by now far in the distance.

((NUFORC Note: May have been a celestial body, perhaps Mars, in the western sky. PD))
