During the summer is usually the time I see a majority of these lights, what caught my attention was the off shade they were compared to like the space station planets stars ect. One night I decided to pull over for a break when i spotted one of these unusal lights, thats when i noticed the movement of them. To give an idea of where they are in the sky i'd say between 45 and 60 degrees up, and the lights will sway left right a few times and up and go real low. My first thought after watching this the first night was a helicopter and i pushed it to the back of my mind.
The next night i saw again this light, again noticing it because of the off color it was and when i stopped to watched it did the normal up down and side to side then in shot off stright up and was gone into the night sky. Of course after this it had my full attention and I brought it to the attention of my running partner after this. It was the following night and again I saw the light and stopped this night having feild glasses with me. I looked and couldn't get a good focus nor could he but, we both could see the strobing lights of blues yellow a purple ect. Neither of us had the time to stay and watch but both could see the bouncing around of the light.
This has to date still continued and not every night maybe one a week if not twice i at one point or another will notice this light. One night i stopped along one of the back roads i take and watched this light bounce up and down like a ekg read out, that night flipped me out i then knew for a fact that i was watching something i couldn't explain.
