Strange Object in Angels Camp, CA

We have had a few regular sightings of an object that always seems to appear West of our property, though this object only appears a few times a month. I have noticed this weird red, orange and blue light that seems to "bounce" around in the sky, or sometimes it will just move from side to side.

My wife and I saw saw it just above the horizon of the hills, but seems to be around 5 miles away, close to Felix or Copperopolis. It pops up every now and then on certain nights. I would gladly like to dismiss this as a radar helicopter, but it is just too bright and the rapid movements it makes just does not add up.

We haven't video taped this object yet, but we are counting on it. We hope to get some pics or footage of this thing eventually. Generally, the object simply "blinks out" when it disappears. I have now seen this thing a dozen times in the past year.

((NUFORC Note: Probable sighting of the star, "Sirius," we suspect. PD))
