|flashing ball of colorful lights
Its was around 11:00pm on one of the clearest nights I've seen here in NY. I live on the south shore of Long Island. I'm out on my deck smoking a cigarette, east southeast into the sky, flashing ball of light changing colors really fast. Even though the object seemed really far, you could still make out that it wasn't a star, it was something I've never seen before. The colors were incredible....It stayed in one spot, didn't move. I went to bed and it was still there. I did try to capture it on my digital camera avi, but I doubt it will be clear.
If it didn't change colors the way it did, and if it didn't flash, I would say their was a possibility of this being a star, but I've been looking at stars since I was a kid, this did not look to be a star. I hope its there again tonight.
((NUFORC Note: Possible twinkling star. PD))
