A variable red/green bright light is seen over the Beverwake

At about 22:30, I go out on the balcony and see bright red and green lights changing every second in the direction to the north.

At first I thought that the plane was approaching Schiphol, which can often be seen over Beverwijk.

But the changing light hung motionless in the air for about 20 minutes.

I grabbed the binoculars and saw that the bright red light consisted of 1 source and turned into 3 closely spaced bright green sources. After about 20 minutes, the light first quickly descended vertically down, and then very quickly vertically up.

Then he stopped a little above his first position for a moment, and then moved quite quickly in a straight line to the east. Disappeared from view behind the buildings.

It definitely wasn't an airplane or a helicopter. Not a single sound was heard from the object.

Original news

Wisselend rood/groen helder licht

BEVERWIJK, NH — Rond 22.30u stap ik op mijn balkon en zie richting het noorden een helder per ~seconde wisselend rood en groen licht. Ik dacht eerst een naderend vliegtuig richting Schiphol, zoals je die vaak kunt zien boven Beverwijk.
Maar het wisselende licht hing bewegingsloos in de lucht gedurende ~20 minuten. Ik heb mijn verrekijker gepakt en zag toen dat het helder rode licht uit 1 bron bestond en veranderde in 3 helder groene bronnen vlak bij elkaar. Na ~20 minuten daalde het licht eerst snel loodrecht naar beneden en dan heel snel loodrecht omhoog. Stond toen weer even stil een stuk boven zijn eerste positie en bewoog toen vrij snel in rechte lijn naar het oosten. Verdween achter de bebouwing uit het zicht. Het was zeker geen vliegtuig of helikopter. Er was geen enkel geluid van het voorwerp te horen.


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence


Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs, also sometimes shortened as BLAH; colloquially sometimes referred to as "drone" or "drone" (from the English. drone — drone)) — aircraft without crew on Board. Created for aerial shooting, monitoring ground objects and other tasks in real time.

Distinguish UAVs for military and civil purposes.

Also they are divided into:

Airplane / Helicopter

An aircraft heavier than air for flights in the atmosphere (and outer space (e.g. An orbital aircraft)), using the aerodynamic lift of a glider to keep itself in the air (when flying within the atmosphere) and the thrust of a power (propulsion) installation for maneuvering and compensating for the loss of total mechanical energy to drag. 

A rotorcraft in which the lift and thrust required for flight are created by one or more main rotors powered by an engine or several engines. They differ in maneuverability, the ability to hover and almost vertical takeoff.
