Altus, Oklahoma Falling Object Changes Color

Date: October 2001
Time: Early morning

Location of Sighting: 1 mile east of Hollis, Oklahoma
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Like a bright Star.

Full Description of event/sighting: I own a farm about 1300 acres, and one morning, very early, I was going to plow. On my way to the field I had a flat, rather than change it in the dark I told myself I would wait until evening and change it then. It was only about a mile to my tractor so I started walking. Always fascinated with the stars I watched the sky as I walked, suddenly I noticed what looked like two stars tumbling slowly, not quite making a complete circle, when all of a sudden they stopped and the star on the right took off to the left at an upward (approx 30 degree angle) trajectory until it faded. The speed was fantastic and when it did this its color changed to a bright blue with maybe a tinge of violet. Amazed I just stared at the same spot hoping the other light would move too. I actually stared at it for probably ten minutes before I realized it was just a star. The sighting was very clear, but I'm sure the object was a good three miles away at least. And the inclination was approx. 30 degrees in the southern sky. The way this thing changed its speed from hovering to taking off like a bullet was most amazing. It was exactly like a bright blue shooting star when it left, except that it went up.

Thank you.

Thank you to the witness for this interesting report.
