Just saw a UFO while sitting on my front porch! :) I first glimpsed it flying eastward above the northern horizon in the near dark. I thought it was a bright flare at first, but then it swerved into the opposite direction and changed colors from red to green. It dipped into the tree-line and then before it descended completely it changed direction again. I'm sure it was a drone (which I've never seen at night before) but ten years ago I would have been pretty excited. I'm still confused by it's apparent size and speed. It was speeding along at too great a pace to be a plane or helicopter and went behind trees that seem a fair distance away. Neat, at any rate! (Pictured is the Virgin Atlantic hoax UFO)

6/29/15 Watching the glowing red-green drone flying overhead again, tonight. It got so close I could hear the propellers. It roves around and then hovers in the same place for minutes at a time, then it goes and disappears behind the distant trees, again.

Very Neat.

Yep, there's someone around here with a pretty slick drone who can expertly maneuver it around at night. I don't know what they're up to or whether they are doing it within the law, though. I've seen drones overhead during the day at local events (I gather they're very common in big cities), but this is the first night drone I've seen around here. Maybe it's a patrol for illegal fireworks or something like that.
