Description: At first glance it looked like a star. It was very far away, but then I saw light flickering. Again, I thought it may be just dust in the air. The more I looked at it led me to believe that it may have been a plane flying towards me and that is why it looked stationary. But it sat in the same place in the sky for at least a half hour. It was there when I first saw it until I went in to go to bed so I don’t know how long it was there. I looked at it through binoculars and it was flashing red, white, and green (or bluish) lights. They looked like they were flashing in circular pattern, but it was hard to tell with the movement of the binoculars. I had my wife look as well since she usually teases me when I say I see stuff in the sky. She agreed it was flashing lights as well. It was north of me not too far above the tree line.

Note: The witness may have seen a bright star. The apparent blinking multi-colors can be due to atmospheric particulates scattering light which can show up as multiple colors especially through binoculars. This light scattering occurs more in celestial objects lower on the horizon (as is the situation with this sighting).

    I saw the same thing in the sky, but it does seem to move from day to day. I go out an hour later and it disappears when the rest of the stars might have moved 10 degrees. One night it is in the Northeast the next 2 nights it is in the Northwest. It blinks red, white, yellow and blue or green. I also looked with binoculars and it seemed to be saucer shaped. I believe we are being observed.

    Seeing the same here in Colon/Sherwood, MI in the Southeastern sky. It flashes white, red, green, and blue color. It seems as if it hovers. It has stayed in the sky until it was too daylight to see it anymore many times at the end of summer. Sometimes it flashes fast, then slow, gets bright and dims as well. I am very curious to know what exactly it is.

    From 2012 (approximately) to 2015 I noticed similar blinking lights in a large patch of the sky in Carson, California. I would “stargaze” almost every night for hours. They would appear in several different areas simultaneously. They would move, but very slowly.

    I live in east Spokane valley, WA. I take my dog out every night once or twice between 10 PM and 3:30 AM. A light appears (I have been noticing it for about 8 months) fairly high off of the horizon in the southwest sky. It strobes or pulses green, blue, white, and red. The red and blue are not constant. It is in roughly the same spot in the sky every night. I have watched it move “short” distances, but it does so very fast and stops on a dime. It does appear to have a distinct shape, but my eyes don’t focus too well at night with my current prescription. I am preoccupied with it. I am always thinking I’m nuts. My wife has seen it as well and seems very uncomfortable talking about it. The past few nights there seems to be another light further west of it’s position. It is much smaller, but it is there. No other celestial bodies appear this way. SOMETIMES on overcast nights it is the only light up there.

    I have seen this many times including tonight Aug 12 2017, in southeastern Ontario looking northwest.

  6. Seth says:

    I see one or two every week night in the same spot in N. Alabama, but they seem to stay in the same spot other than moving up or down somewhat. My friend sees one from his house every night & we are looking at one now in the night sky on a Saturday or early Sunday morning actually.

    I have seen 4 different ones over Ottumwa, Iowa and sometimes they get super bright then die down and then start flashing bright again. It is weird. I have a High Power Spotter and I just can’t seem to make it out other then a “circular thing”. My friend hit it with a high power green laser beam and “something” seemed to break off and float in the direction his beam came from. Needless to say it scared “the crap” out of us so we high tailed it. These “things” have been witnessed by MANY neighbors for over 6 years now.. Add me on snapchat and we can share videos of these.

    It’s the star Capella. Actually Capella has two stars. They are close to one another. They are bigger and brighter than our own star, the Sun. In the fall Capella always flashes these curious lights. It is natural and normal.

    I have seen the same thing several times. On September 29th, my daughter and I saw a fast moving light that stopped on a dime. I thought I would record with my phone although although i was doubtful that it would work. It worked! It is the only thing visible in both recordings.

  10. Jessica says:

    I have seen the exact same thing multiple times for the past few months. I have seen it move and it can hover for hours. I have sat and watched it. If it is Capella, why doesn’t it rotate at the same degree as the other stars? I am very concerned and my boyfriend thinks I am crazy. He has seen it too, but tells me it is the north star. No way! Please update me if there is any new information on this. The location of my sightings is Willernie, MN
