Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted beams, The object changed color
Random flashing multicolored lights, with one spotlight, shining down onto my house.

Standing outside in my garden, I noticed a light on the horizon. It was red at the beginning, but after a few minutes, it got brighter as it approached and resolved into a multicolored profusion of lights.

The event lasted about 5 minutes, and during the last 30 or so seconds, the collection of multicolored, randomly flashing lights stopped directly over my house, which was about a hundred feet from the garden. It was dark, so I couldn't discern the shape of whatever it was, just a bunch of randomly flashing multicolored lights.

It appeared to be about 100 feet above the house, and if I had to guess based on the cluster of lights as an indicator of size, I would say that it was about 20 feet wide.

Anyway, as it stopped over my house, a spotlight shone down from it onto the house. I must emphasize that it made no noise at all during the entire time, even when it was almost directly overhead.

When the spotlight appeared, I panicked and ran into the house. The person who I was standing with outside watching it followed me after about 15 more seconds. After I had calmed down some, we both went back outside and it was gone.
