Shape: Light | Duration: 2 hours
Source:

I noticed this light a month ago and it seems to be in the sky almost every night.... It is scary how it moves around so quickly at timI have seen this light before in the sky. I had my friend video it to believe it. It is the brightest light in the sky..... Moves from side to side and up and down...It looks like a ball of energy, looks like it could be spinning. It has been in the sky now for over two hours.((NUFORC Note: We presume the witness implies an evening, not a morning, sighting. PD))
