|Flashing sequences of lights
Beginning the evening of September 7th I noticed flashing lights in the northern sky to my left. I thought at first it was a plane, but it did not move. It flashed in sequence red, white, blue, then white, blue, red, and again, white, blue, red. This continued through the night. At around 3:00 am I went to bed. On September 8th, around 21:00 again, my son, this time ran in the house and told me to come outside and look, it was the same as the night before with it moving more to the east. It was in a slightly different location than the previous night. I tried to find an astronmer club to see if this was a planet or a star. But noone seems to be able to help me. I am more convinced it was something besides planets or stars because of the continued light sequences. My camera of course would not pick up the image. Tonigt, September 9th, it is gone.
((NUFORC Note: We suspect the star, "Sirius," in the NE sky, at present. PD))
