Home and Yard Lit up By Solid White Light, Surrounded By Colored LightsI'm visiting my parents in Michigan, and at 1:30 AM my dog wanted to go outside very badly. She started barking incessantly after a few minutes. When I went to let her back in I saw that the home behind (and 4 doors down from) my parents home was encased in a bright white light. The light was very strange in that I could not identify the source. However, it reminded me of looking at a football field lit up for a night game -- the light is directed squarely on the field but darkness surrounds the field. This is how the light behaved that shined on the house (and only that house and it's yard). The light was much whiter and much brighter than what would be achieved by floodlights. Furthermore, a band of relatively large colored balls of light surrounded the home itself. To borrow from another analogy, it looked like a band of Christmas lights surrounding the home. However, these lights were much, much larger than Christmas lights (about the size of a fist at arms distance). The colored lights were bobbing up and down slightly. I remember seeing red, blue, and possibly green lights. No yellow color. There was no sound other than my dog incessantly barking directly at this home. The sighting lasted about 35 seconds (from the time I saw the white light), and suddenly the white light 'turned off'. The colored lights remained around the home. Therefore, the white light was 35 seconds in duration (but I caught it after it was first present), and the colored lights lasted much longer. It was very late, and very cold in Michigan, and I therefore did not go outside to investigate further after the white light 'turned off'. I am making this report because the light, in my opinion, were absolutely not floodlights or 'party' lights, and the source of the white light was far above the house & yard (but I did not see a 'craft').
