Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
Коог ан де Заан

An orange object about 7 cm in size, which moved like a firecracker, was seen over Koog an de Zaan.

It was about 2001, I was standing in front of the window in my bedroom (1st floor). About 40 cm from the window was a small orange thing, similar to a firecracker, which rotated and emitted light. It lasted about 15 seconds. She hung there, then moved away from the window until I couldn't see her anymore. So, this happened a long time ago, I'm posting this here because I'm curious if anyone else has seen something like this.

Original news

Oranje, ca. 7 cm groot objectje dat ronddraaiend bewoog als een voetzoeker

KOOG AAN DE ZAAN, NH — Het jaartal was rond 2001, ik stond voor het raam in mijn slaapkamer (1 hoog). Op ongeveer 40 cm van het raam hing een klein oranje voetzoeker-achtig dingetje dat ronddraaide en licht gaf. Het bleef ca. 15 sec. hangen, daarna verwijderde het zich van het raam, tot ik het niet meer kon zien. Dit is dus lang geleden gebeurd, ik plaats het hier omdat ik benieuwd ben of iemand anders ook ooit iets dergelijks heeft gezien.
