Date of sighting: January 3, 2012
Location of sighting: Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA
Eyewitness states: "I looked out my window and saw a red, blue, yellow and green light but it was really far away. At first glance I thought it was a helicopter or airplane. but when I looked out the window a few minutes later it was still there. I focused on the lights for a few minutes trying to see if it was a helicopter. I couldn't tell so I got my telescope and tried viewing it. I noticed it looked like it was spinning in one spot so I grabbed my camera and went outside to take some pictures. The light did look like an object but was not circular. But since it was spinning it looked like a circle. When I snapped the pictures a bunch of lights formed around it as if it was more than one object leaving a trail of lights all over. So I believe this was a UFO sighting."
