Posted: 6/9/2017
Location: Kalamazoo, MI
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Red light observed hovering over Kalamazoo.

As I was looking at the sky to the south, I observed a red light, with a flashing green or blue light, traveling from the south and heading northward.

At first, I thought it could be an airplane, but the red light was too large and bright. It traveled in a straight line and stopped for a few seconds and remained stationary. It then moved west a few degrees, before continuing on the original trajectory northward. It then stopped again and remained stationary for about 10 minutes. This location was around 15 degrees to the east of the planet, Jupiter.

This was a partly cloudy night and the object was below the cloud ceiling as it was never obscured by the clouds. I tried observing through binoculars but was too jerky to get a clear sighting. It did, however, appear to be 2 red light with blinking blue or green lights through the binoculars. There was no sound at all. It then started to move slowly back south, would stop for a while, then proceed. It seemed to pick up speed, as it traveled south out of view.
