Description: ON JULY 21, 2008 AT AROUND 9:30PM MY SISTER, MY SON AND, I NOTICED A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE SKY. IT ALMOST LOOKED LIKE IT WAS COMING AT US. IT WAS VERY ROUND AND KIND OF LOOKED LIKE A FIREWORK WHEN THEY EXPLODE. IT LOOKED LIKE IT HAD OCTOPUS LEGS, BUT IN THE FORM OF LIGHTS. AFTER 2 MINUTES OF STARING AT THIS, I RAN TO GET MY CAMERA. BY THE TIME I GOT BACK IT WAS GONE. AFTER ABOUT 15 MINUTES, WE NOTICED THE STRANGE OBJECT AGAIN. THIS TIME, WE GOT BINOCULARS, AND WHEN LOOKING THROUGHT THEM, WE SAW DIFFERENT COLOR LIGHTS. THIS WAS NOT AN AIRPLANE. THIS OBJECT HAD NO SOUND, NONE THAT WE COULD HEAR ANYWAY. ANYWAY LOOKING THROUGHG THE BINOCULARS. WE NOTICED RED, BLUE, GREEN AND ORANGE LITES JUST CIRCLING. WE CALLED A FEW FRIENDS OF OURS. THEY CAME OVER AND WE DISCOVERED 2 MORE OF THESE OBJECTS,ONE OF WHICH WAS ALMOST DIRECTLY UNDERNEATH THE OTHER AND ALSO WE NOTICED BEHIND OUR HOUSE WHERE THERE WAS ONE. WHEN LOOKING THROUGH THE BINOCULARS, I SAW A BRIGHT GREEN LIGHT JUST BEAMING DOWN, LIKE IT WAS HOVERING. THIS ACTIVITY CONTINUED OFF AND ON FOR ALMOST 2 HOURS.

Comments: It is difficult to say what the witnesses sighted. It is not clear on how the lights moved or if they really moved at all. The report seems to suggest that the lights blinked on and off in varied patterns. The two photos taken show well defined large lights. The photos were taken with a Kodak C360 Zoom Digital camera (maximum resolution of 5 mega-pixels.)
