A very bright aircraft hovering above the ground for about 25 minutes then it disappeared behind the mts.

I'm a 38 yr old real estate broker, female, in bed last night and I had been looking out the window in which I have a clear view and I noticed a very large what looked like aircraft but was very large with an enormous light or lights that was moving very slowly in the distance. I went to our balcony to get a better view with my husband and we watched it for over twenty min together. I had gotten my digital camera before I went to the balcony and took five photos of the object. It seemed like the color was changing to brighter then dimmer as a result I expect from heat? There was a dark purple haze spinning around this sphere of light. It kept moving in the same vicinity slightly upwards, downwards, side to side. I returned to bed continuing to watch (my husband went downstairs)and it slowly descended behind the mountains.

I downloaded the pictures from the camera and they came out showing an enormous yellow and red starburst type aura.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness may have been looking at a celestial body, possibly Sirius. PD))
