Full Description & Details

10:45 PM, Clear night, 02-09-2006

On my way home from work I saw flashing lights to my right. I slowed down but did not stop. Above a treeless suburban yard I saw an object hovering, flashing red, blue, and green lights from right to left. It was metallic-looking, not shiny but moderately reflective (like pewter), with a rounded stair shape that was more pronounced on the right side. It was about twice as long as it was tall. I think I saw the cycle of red, blue, and green lights four times during the eight second sighting. The lights were on the bottom of the object, toward the right.

The defroster was on in my car, so I couldn't tell if there was sound with this object or not.

I thought my depth perception might have been fooled, and that the object may have been something small suspended in the yard or part of a signal for planes on top of a tower. I have looked at this yard twice since that night (once during the day and once at night) and have seen nothing in the yard, above it, or on the horizon behind it.

I had the feeling I was seeing something about the size of 2 city buses, one on top of the other, far enough away that the image was about 2" high x 3" long.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I wondered if my depth perception was off and the object could actually have been something small (12"x24") suspended in the yard. I have not seen anything in the yard since this sighting.

Witness Background

I have some college, am now a retail manager.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I watched television shows about UFOs skeptically, and rolled my eyes when people gave first-hand accounts. I don't know what to think right now, since I really don't know what I saw.

Other Comments

I was driving, and tired, and could very well have seen something perfectly normal and misinterpreted it.
