Description: Hello I awoke at about 03:20 hours because it was hot and stuffy. I decided to lean out of my window and get some air. To my left something caught my eye. It was very bright and too bright for a plane or a star. I thought maybe it could be a shooting star, but once Ii had become accustomed to the light I could see that it was stationary. I have a small pair of binoculars 8x20. I fished them out and viewed the light. Once I had managed to focus on the light I could see it was pulsing! The light was in fact orange, white, green and then red. I observed this for about 15 minutes as the sky was becoming light it appeared to climb upwards. It was not a helicopter the height was too great for this and from what I could make out the shape was longer than any chopper I have seen. What made me think this was a UFO was the fact that the lights pulsated like the emergency lights on a police car or an ambulance! The lights were clear and very bright! As the darkness became light the lights had reached a height where I could not view them any longer. I do not own a good camera so I took no pictures. For that I am sorry! I would say the length of the light display was about 60 feet across what appeared to be a flat surface. I would say the lights I viewed were at a height of about 15,000 feet.

Comments: At first I interpreted this sighting as probably a bright star or planet, but given the deductive reasoning by the witness I exclude this as a likely explanation. Therefore I am not sure what the witness sighted.
