Duration:ongoing as of 21:25
|Small flashing star-like object, primarily white light with smaller red and green lights.
Singe object in southwestern sky initially noticed at 20:45. Approximately 45 degrees above horizon and relatively stationary; as of 21:18 had only fallen a few degrees towards the horizon.
Appeared as a fairly bright "star" approximating magnitude of Sirius, however was visibly flashing with hints of red and green. Viewed through 4" telescope, very obvious red and green colors intermixed with predominant white light. Appears to be quite distant - through scope, slightly smaller than pencil erasor. No details visible, simply a flashing 'blob' of lights. No sound at all. Is very definitely not a commercial aircraft.
As of now, 21:25, has edged at most a few degrees slightly to the west-southwest, but still appears fairly stationary. Very slight haze of bright light around object, pulsating slightly as the flashing (which is continuous and ongoing w/ seemingly no pattern) continues.
((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witness might be looking at Sirius. PD))
