When driving down a country road toward my house at about 8 pm, I looked across an empty field to see a large stationary orange light high in the sky. I slowed down quite a bit to observe the light across the field. As I watched it, it quickly flashed yellow, white, red, a pinkish tint of red, then back to orange. I thought this was very odd so I hurried home and turned down the unpaved road which I live on. When I turned down the road, the light was still high in the sky but a little lower then before (the color of the light was still orange). I decided to flash my high beams at it. I flashed my lights three times. I then noticed the object flashed at me once or twice but still remained the same color orange. This really startled me. I got home and the light was behind my house and extremely low in the sky (about the height a helicopter would be at to view a police pursuit). I told my dad about it and he came out to see it. We were looking at it through th! e trees and he also thought it was strange. So he went back inside to put his shoes on. As he went in, the light flashed yellow for about 3 seconds, then back to a really bright orange. He came back outside and we observed it for about 20 minutes. Then it slowly turned red and then the light went off for about 5 seconds. Then at that time it was noticed the craft was a metallic looking sphere. Then the red light returned on the craft. It still remained stationary, then as we looked right over our heads a different white light (which looked like a normal airplane from a distance) passed slowly over our heads making no noise what so ever. It only had one white light on the bottom of the craft (There was no red or green lights on the craft like you would see on a normal airplane) Compared to the craft with the red light, it moved perpendicular across the sky. As the white light craft flew off from west to east. We focused our attention back to the red light craft. Now the red ! light craft was moving in our direction. Then it stopped once again. It then flew in random patterns very slowly. Then it seemed to stop moving. We continued observing it until it sank below the tree line and was no longer visible.
