Duration:30 minutes
flashing light in sky

We saw the same thing as described below -- facing to the south. We were going to bed and suddenly saw this light. We watched it for about 30 minutes -- mostly through a set of high-quality naval binoculars. It seemed to be mostly stationary although it also moved slightly.

We're on the flight path of the local airport so we know what that sounds like. Additionally, both my wife and I are familiar with military and commercial aircraft. This was not an aircraft on a approach pattern. It was also about 10 degrees, clear, good visibility.

Location: Franklin, VT
Shape: Unknown
Duration:current Flickering stationary light in sky, upon looking with binoculars also has red, blue, (?green) pulsating lights.

Looking up in the NW sky we first saw one very bright star that appeared to be flickering. Upon further inspection with binoculars, we saw that it had Blue, Red, (?Green), and yellow blinking lights. Looks as though the yellow - white light is in the middle and the other colored lights surround it. Examing the rest of the sky we see 3 more of the same. One in the NW sky, one in the NE sky, one in the SE, one in the SW. The moon is almost full. There are a lot of planes as well in the sky tonight, but these lights are stationary, and they don't blink like an airplane. I saw the first one at about 20:30. Now at 22:42 all 4 are still in the sky. What are they?
