I was on my backdoor stoop giving my 2 dogs toilet break. The dogs were barking so loudly I tried to see them, it was nighttime. That is when I noticed the object. It at first appeared to be a whitish disc that suddenly moved backwards from it's apparent flight path at that moment it suddenly moved forward a full length ahead of where it was originally. That is when I noticed while it slowed down considerably it had rotating lights along its entire shape red white some yellow with a bluish constant light behind the other rotating lights.I watched it until it disappeared behind the tree line. It was a very clear beautiful night.This was my second visual sighting of an unknown objest. The last time I was with my parents on the side porch. I was 7yrs old so when my dad said too look I did. He said those were not Airplane colors. This current sighting was fascinating. I felt wide awake and concerned. I was not drinking or taking any illegal substances. I was clear minded. After I told my wife what I saw (she was at work) she has been uncompfortable ever since.This is the first time I felt a strong need to report something like this. I knew it was not an airplane or helicopter.
