At 10:30pm on Sunday night, 6-19-2011, I was in my apartment when I noticed the sky glowing an unusual purple outside my window. I stepped out onto my 28th story balcony to see what why the sky was so lit up at 10:30 at night. I immediately noticed an unusual aircraft at the center of the illuminated sky. My initial reaction was that it was some new kind of advertising blimp with flashy lights.

As I continued to study the aircraft I realized how unfamiliar and strange it appeared and it seemed to be flying too high above the city to be advertising anything legible.

Aircraft Description: Single aircraft -Extremely bright -Blinking lights, from white, to red, to blue -Oval in shape -Slow moving, almost hovering -Strange flight pattern, (first moved NE, then came back and moved SW vanishing from the viewpoint of my balcony.)

Personal Reaction to the Sighting: After staring for a few minutes in disbelief I grabbed my i-phone took two pictures and a brief video. Called my mom, a few friends, and your hotline.

My Background: I was alone at the time this occurred, I had just come home from Fatherís day dinner with my family and was getting ready to go to sleep.

I am a 24 year old female,college graduate in Economics; currently working in Finance and definitely not a person who has given UFOís much thought until now.

Seeking clarification on what I saw last night. Iím fascinated by the possibility this could be an unknown, but I would like to know if what I saw was simply a blimp or some other man-made aircraft.

If someone could look at my photos and videos and get back to me I would appreciate it.

Did anyone else see this???
