|Moving star-like objects and Red Flashing Lights
My husband called me outside to see a light that was hovering and changing colors in the northwestern sky.
We called our children (ages 12 and 10) outside to view the light. We brought out our binoculars to get a better view. While I was looking through the binculars, my son (12)saw a red streak go down to the right of the object and screamed "Did you see that?". I didn't, but when we searched for the first light that was chaning colors it had disappeared.
We continued to look up at the sky. We saw two star-like objects move together from left to right in the north western sky and then they disappeared. Then there were two star-like objects in the northeastern sky that would appear and disappear in slightly different areas than they were before, but their distance from each other remained the same.
Then we saw a star like object move over head from north to south. It passed another starlike object and made an immediate turn back and joined with the object it had just passed. It appeared to form a tiangle with two other star-like items.
Finally, we saw three red flashing lights go across the sky from the south east part of town over to the northwest part of town. Using binoculars we tracked it as it went across the sky. The three red lights flashed randomly in a triangle formation. There was absolutely no sound coming from the object. Shortly after it had passed an airplace passed in the distance and it could clearly be heard!
It was an exciting two hours we spent looking up at the sky! We also saw several shooting stars through out the night. We hope others in the Tucson area saw the same thing!
((NUFORC Note: Likely sighting of Sirius. PD))
