Duration: 3-5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
Red colored orb sitting high in sky in one spot, hovering. Then raised straight up, fast, to a very high altitude in the sky and turned bright blue. I compared height pictures from drones and this was well over the limit of a drone and at least 1,000 feet up, probably more. It was an overcast unusually foggy night for our area. It remained blue then dropped straight down at a controlled descent in which it turned red again once reaching the same altitude where I first saw it. It then continued to go down towards the ground until I could not see it. VERY BRIGHT. I have looked at pictures of Drones. They are not bright like this and I do not think could have raised elevation straight up and down so fast. I was sitting on my deck looking South toward's Molly's Nipple, a local landmark.
