Full Description of event/sighting: Hello Brian, a few days ago I was watching an elliptical light hovering. From my view out my bedroom window it was above the roof of the house on the corner, but much more distant. It was the size of the average moon at it's dimmest. It was slowly pulsing from a dim white to a very bright pure white and then into a fiery orange, where it was it's largest and repeating the whole time. I was watching it for nearly an hour, hovering but still making very, very small movements all around. It seemed like it hadn't moved, yet towards the end of the sighting I noticed it was now over the roof of the house next to the corner house. I gave up looking after a while, so I don't know how it left, but around 5 minuets later I looked and there was a small plane approaching to land in that exact spot but it was gone. Through the sighting I noticed the airport turn on its beacon and all the lights for a large twin prop landing, then turned them back off. I don't know how they possibly couldn't see it, the tower's beacon is around the same height as this seemed to be. But it was perfectly elliptical even when it went dim and it seemed to disappear real quick.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
