|Saucer like object with clear red & blue lights
At around 1:20 a.m. we went out back of my house, which is facing dirrectly West. We see a light in the distance but I quickly shrugged it off as an airplane because of the red and blue flashing lights. We BS'd outside for a few more minutes before we realized that the object hadn't moved in the sky (or atleast not enough to be a plane). We got our camera with a high powered lense, and were able to get a better view. The object was undoubtably saucer shaped, with a red light that was traveling around the object, and a blue light that appeared to be stationary at top. The red light was very prodominant every time it circled around the object. The longer we watched the object, we realized it was starting to move West. It moved West, a really really long ways for almost 45 minutes, to the point that it was getting a bit more difficult to see, but the strange thing is the red light was still very prominant. You could tell it was a red light (looking like blinking now) but it was thousands of miles away at this point. The object then changed course and started heading north. It was obviously too far away to really see it moving from looking at it. But we used landmarks (trees, other objects) to be able to tell when the object was staying still, or moving in a particular direction. I know of no aircraft that is known to the public that can produce the results that we saw tonight. Hopefully someone else saw it !!!! I believe the object was someone over our coast range when we first spoted it. Then again I am not expert on telling how far away objects in the sky are.
