Shape: Disk
Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright orange lights turn into slow moving saucer shaped object in the night sky.

At 9:00 my daughter and I went out for our evening walk and had been walking for about an hour when we came back to my house. We were standing at the end of my drive looking at the stars when my daughter pointed out what at first looked like a bright orange fire ball but it was quite a ways away. At first it was sitting in the same spot but after a few minutes it started moving in our direction which would have been north. It moved very slow and as we watched the lights started flashing. We watched to see if it was an airplane but it did not look like an airplane as there were no red lights and the lights that were on it had started flashing and seemed to be moving around the object. The object was nearly over us and it slanted as it turned and the top of the object had what I can only describe as a dome. It then began moving faster and as it went over us we could see the lights that were orange and moved around the outside of the object. It never got! close to us or close to the ground but close enough that we could see the lights and the dome. Finally after about 15 minutes of watching the object sped up and we could no longer see it.
