My friends and I were sitting outside after just getting back from Six Flags. We were talking about the weather and how perfectly clear it was. I was looking at the starts when three of them started to move around. They eventually got bigger and bigger until it seemed like they were right on top of us. Then they even changed color from a bright white to a dark red to blue back to a dark red. There wasn't any noises that we could hear but there was a weird static electricity feeling, like having your hair stand up straight. Anyway, one of my friends passed out (I guess he was too scared) and my other friend and I leaned over to see what was wrong and when we looked back there was nothing there. I don't really know if that was considered a UFO sighting, but I can't think of anything else that would explain what happened. I've heard of ligtning balls, but they only occur when it's storming. So I hope this information is somewhat usefull.

((NUFORC Note: We are aware of no other sightings from this area on this date. It is difficult for us to imagine how such a dramatic sighting could occur in a well populated area, and no other reports be submitted. PD))
