Duration:1 hour
Light hovering in sky that jerked and wobbled about, surrounded by brief flashes of light

From my bedroom window I saw a strange, flashing light hovering about 5 miles in the sky. At first, I thought it was a star or plane, but then realized it was generally stationary, but jerking erratically. It flashed and changed color frequently. Occasionally, brief, smaller flashed of light popped up around it. These flashes, and the main "craft" were white, and sometimes yellow.

((NUFORC Note: We believe that the star, Sirius, seen in the southern sky at this time, would have to be ruled out, before we would consider a UFO as the explanation for this sighting. PD))
