The following was submitted to UFO Casebook, and used here with permission:
I took my dogs out at approx. 11 pm. I always check the sky and a star-like object appeared west and slightly north, 1:30, to direct west.
I took out my phone and tried to take a picture.
The object slowly dimmed to black. I continued to attend the dogs. A few minutes later the object reappeared.
I tried to get a picture, but again it dimmed to black. I went inside and went to bed.
As I lay in bed the object reappeared.
I must say it was too close to the horizon to be a star. I took another look with binoculars. The object had a yellow glow when magnified.
After a few minutes it disappeared again. I checked a few more times but it did not reappear.
Object viewed about 20 or 30 mins.
It appeared to be suspended out over the Allegan County game area; a very remote and sparsely populated area. I didn’t think much more about it and went to sleep.
I just saw a sighting in California recently and it looked exactly like the object I witnessed.
