Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
White, yellow, and orange orb of light flying at rapid pace and hovering.

Around 9:30pm our neighbors a few houses down set off hundreds of fireworks in the span of 4-5 minutes. The fireworks were too small to see over the tree-line and sounded like gunshots so we went outside to check it out. Walking back inside and see a small white light appear in the sky. Over the span of 5 seconds it covers 5+ miles and comes within 2 miles and is now a large white/yellow/orange orb hovering in the sky. The UFO watches the commotion for 15 seconds, turns right, accelerates and vanishes into nothing.

Multiple witnesses and certainly not an effect from the fireworks. The airport is 5.5 miles from my house and we can see planes fly in and know what they look like. This was not a plane, helicopter, or drone.
