The first sighting occurred on 1/6/16. I live on the top floor of an apartment. While watching TV in the living room, I saw a light outside of my balcony around 2000/2030. Thinking it was a helicopter or plane, I ignored it. The light appeared to be getting brighter and changing in characteristic. I got up and observed two bright white objects with red lights. The second object disappeared and there was only one object. The object was hovering but was making small adjustments in its position. It was not completely stationary. It would stay illuminated for several minutes then it would fade away. After several more moments, the object would re-appear. This occurred for roughly 2 hours staying in the relatively same position. Around 2200, a helicopter flew from the East to South in the direction of the object which then disappeared for the rest of the night (at least until midnight). There is a military base East of my location. I am not familiar with the differences between a military or civilian helicopter so I am not sure if it was from the military base.
On 1/7/16, the object again appeared in the same position as the night before. The time it was sighted was from 2000 – 2130. You can see planes, stars, and helicopters in the area which all look different from the object. The object was brighter on 1/7 but may have been closer in proximity. The object was spherical in nature and you could see a clear row of lights that had both red and white lights. The object again would be illuminated for several moments then fade away completely. No helicopters were observed flying toward the object this evening.
