Shape: Circle
Duration: 3 hours
The object was a circle that was blinking red blue and green at diferent times then another one was doing the same

I was just getting home from my waterpolo practice, and got out of the car with my friend. My Mom, Dad, and sister were all outside on the front pourch. Its was already dark because it was like 6. but anyway i asked them what they were doing and the said that there is a circle in the sky about this size O or a little bigger. I looked at it and it was changing colors, like lights were blinking on it red green and blue. It didnt move for a whole hour just sat there we watched it the whole time. We also had binoculars so it made somewhat a little more definite. after about the first hour we notice that it was going South East very very slow. when it got to a certain point it just turned white and we noticed another small one below it, It was doing the exact same thing but it was a little fainter, this one was following the exact some path that the bigger one took. The bigger one after a while started to look like a star like it was disguising itself as a star becasue it had stoped changing color and was just white. We didnt watch it long enough to see if they disapered or anything. But we have never seen any stars out that way or that low and my dad constatnly looks out that way because he watches the planes come in. He is the one who spotted it first. personally i think it was a good siting, but not a very active one. except for the blinking lights
