Hello Brian

On December 30. Sunday at 4:45 p.m. I was watching a bright white light hovering low in the south west horizon. It was in the wrong place for Venus. A few minutes of observation and I knew it wasn't a plane or a helicopter. At about 4:50 it was slowly moving toward the west. It remained a bright white light. A few minutes later and I watched it descend into the trees on the hill directly south of Vernon airport. Through the binos I watched it disappear from sight, and the bottom of the light "seemed" to turn orange red as if it was shutting down.

Then just over the lake my eye caught strobing lights moving too fast for a small plane about to land.I saw an "orb ascend quickly" towards (sort of) the north from the lake and in the binoculars it seemed to go right by a plane heading southwest.

The plane was low (approx. 15,000 ft) with its wing lights on.The orb had pink strobing lights but was barely visible to the naked eye.The orb reminded me of the globes that appear when Ghosts are filmed. Nebulous but there.The sky was still in its final colors of sunset, though the sun was long gone.

Wow. was I excited. take care

Thank you to the witness for the report.
