Description: On Friday, my stepfather was driving me home from a night of Christmas shopping. We were heading west on Caribbean Blvd. I was looking out the passenger side window when I saw a bright shining yellow light, similar to that of a star. The thing that stood out so much about this light was that it was so close to us. My stepfather looked over and all of a sudden it shifted from one light, to 3 in the shape of a triangle. My stepfather slowed down and turned into the first block nearest to us. We headed towards it a bit out of curiosity. We were parked staring at these 3 lights, then the lights shut off and we could now see a spinning green and red light. The thing started to hover and spin, almost like a bee would. It swayed back and fourth in the same spot and the red and green lights continued to spin. Then the flying object started to move towards us and then over us slowly. (I can’t even explain this part without truly getting the goose bumps over and over again.) I jumped out of the car. I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing. The bottom looked like a boomerang. You could barely see the lights from the bottom. And it made not one sound. For being so close to us, it was just amazing. Once over us, it took off. We could see it in the distance. It was moving so quickly. We got back in the car and headed towards my house which is located on Marlin near US-1. I kept my eyes on it though. I began to convince myself that it had to have been some plane or fighter jet. I just couldn't’t believe that I had seen an actual UFO. When I arrived at my house, my stepfather and I could see it again. It had stopped moving and was just spinning in the sky. (The lights were: red, yellow, green and blue) It was much higher then it was when it flew over us. My husband came out to see and was equally intrigued by this thing. He took out binoculars and we could clearly see the separations in the lights and the slight movements of it. After this moment, it never moved from its spot. It was to the left of Orion. At 11 PM we saw a plane fly over it. (The plane was much higher.) No less then 10 minutes later, it appears the same plane flew over it again coming from the direction in which it had gone before. Then a 3rd time, the plane flew over it. We went inside to wrap our gifts and get this craziness out of our heads. Around 3 AM, we decided to go outside and see if it was still visible. And it had moved, along with all the stars!! Orion was much more to the right of the sky, and this UFO was exactly to the left of it. It moved with the earth even though it was so close to the ground. I cant explain what it was. All I can tell you is that it flew over me. I clearly saw the bottom of it. I saw the lights and the pining. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. I just really wanted to share this with someone because my husband, stepfather and I truly feel like no one will ever believe us. I thought to call someone, but had no idea where to even begin. I hope you can give me some insight.

Comments: The fact that the witnesses saw these lights for a long period of time and that the lights moved with the Earth's rotation suggests that the lights could have been an astronomical phenomenon. However, the witnesses mentioned that the lights were spinning and that they moved over the car. This fact casts more doubt that the witnesses were observing an astronomical phenomenon.
