|Pulsing light in South-West Ohio (Clermont County)
On Monday, Nov 3rd, 2008, my wife and I were heading east-bound on US32 when we noticed a bright, stationary light due east. The light was about the same intensity of a car's headlamp, but pulsed with a 2 second interval in between pulses.
We maintained contact with the light as we exited U32 and continued to watch the light which did not move in over a 2-3 minute period. At this point, the light began to change color and turn from a whitish color to a red-orange and then disappeared. My wife initially thought it could be a low flying plane or helicopter, but was disproved when we saw a helicopter flying to a local hospital...and seeing planes flying in the area. While planes and helicopters have strobe-type lights, these where much larger and pulsed very slowly. There also where no "running lights" common in other aircraft.
