Location: Louisville, CO
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
White light grew in size and disappeared.

I was taking my dog out before bed when I heard this loud airplane roaring above, so I looked up in the sky and saw this solid white light passing near the plane.

All of a sudden it grew about 5 times in size for about 2 seconds, turned a light bluish color and then shrank until I couldn’t see it anymore.

The strange thing is it appeared to be traveling away from earth not north, south, east or west.

It was a clear night sky and lots of stars were out.

((NUFORC Note: Possible flare from Iridium satellite?? We have amended the date above, in order to reflect a nighttime sighting. PD))
