On the evening of 12-12-2012, beginning at approximately 7:25pm, I witnessed what appeared to be an aircraft with its landing lights on, approaching from the E-SE, headed N-NW.
The craft was traveling at a speed that you would associate with an airplane, only the lights were very bright, which made me notice it, and lights that were orange-ish in color.
I had stopped my car that I was traveling in to watch the craft at this point, which I could see very clearly now, as there are no street lights in my neighborhood, and I have 20/15 vision.
As the craft approached, I could see that it was now actually a group of tightly arranged lights that appeared pyramidal in shape, and the lights were a combination of bright orange and yellow. I immediately reached for my Motorola Droid Razr HD and began filming in "HD" mode, under normal magnification.
The craft had come to a "complete stop" at this point and was now oscillating in distinctly different colors: red, blue, green, orange and yellow
About 6 seconds into the video I zoomed in at approximately 75% magnification, in an attempt to get better detail of what I was witnessing and observing.
I would estimate that my distance from the object was approximately 1/2 mile.
At 20 seconds into the video taping of the craft, it "blinked" a couple of times and vanished.
I continued taping, adding details to the video to corroborate the time and date of what I had just observed, along with other identifying information.
