Duration:30 minutes +
Summary : One object, too far to see size and shape, one blinking light red/green/white. Stayed in oproximately same spot for about 30 minutes +. Seems to be hovering pretty high off the ground, but too low for a star.

We viewed this object with a 10/50 binoculars. We can only see that it is a fast blinking light, it was too far to see, about 20 miles away. It blinked rapidly red, green and white. It didnt move much, just seemed to hover pretty high off the ground, not moving fast at all. But a couple 1000 feet high off the ground, deffinitely not a star. We called the airport and they showed nothing on radar, which was a 40 mile distance, and it was with in that proximity. There were 4 of us that observed the UFO. First was Carl, 45, no prior arrests, and didnt drink anything all night. Second was Phil, 15, no drinks and no arrests. Third was Pat, a little alchohol, and no prior charges. Fourth was Rick, 26, no prior arrests, very little to drink.
