|unknown aircraft that dimmed and brightened when moving.
Having received a call from a friend in Springfield, Massachusetts, that an object he saw was headed my way, I headed out to find the object and try to identify it as I am an aviation enthusiast.
I saw a few lights and was able to identify them as commercial aircraft. But one light seemed to stay ahead of me.
I maintained visual contact with it in my car and finally got close enough in Broad Brook, Connecticut. It had a bright pale yellow light and almost seemed to hover.
Very suddenly it got 10 times brighter, its color changing into a bright white light and it moved very rapidly towards me. And as it drew very close, its color again dimmed to a pale yellow and it slowed almost into a hover.
It then proceeded to turn towards the northwest. As it did, I saw it had 4 pale yellow lights with a red, blue, amber and green light next to each pale yellow light. It leveled off, got very bright again, and took of so fast I lost contact.
This object was ! no commercial aircraft and it moved far too fast to be a helicopter or a tilt rotor aircraft such as an Osprey.
And note, no aircraft, civilian or military, has an amber light.
