It was about 10:30pm in st. clair shores (se michigan). my brother and i were taking out the garbage and i notices a strange looking light. i pointed it out to my brother and we both thought that it was strange looking. there were no clouds or visible stars in the sky at the time of the sighting. i looked in all directions and didn't see any other objects. the object varied in altitude and never made a sound. i live between selfridge air base, a coast guard station, and metro detroit airport. i have never seen anything like this. it was way to high to be a helicopter and it was not as low as the flights that i watch land at metro. as we watched it, it hovered, it moved side to side, and up and down. it was very slow moving. it was a bit hazy as if it had a halo of light around it. at its closest it appeared to have an x shape protruding from its bottom half. the x shape portion of it looked like it was aluminate and it changed colors, vacillating from red, to green, to purple. the top half of the orb seemed to have a constant white glow with an orange tint. we watched it for about ten minutes. we attempted to take pictures and videos of it. all of the content that we were able to capture was blurry. the still images of the object were very blurry and appear as a hot spot in the frame.
