Location: Atlanta, GA
Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
My wife and I noticed a bright light in the direction west of Atlanta tonight that became very bright and then dim and repeated the same pattern multiple times slowly over the duration of observation. It moved slightly over the 20 minutes observed but not fast enough to be an aircarft. The object was also far too high in elevation to be a helicopter. It would be considered by anyone to obviously be brighter than any star or planet in the sky on even a clear night, but the clouds behind it tonight(and sometimes briefly masked by) proved it to be closer in. The brightness and then dimming was also not the result of the clouds becasue it did this even when clear. We also caught several minutes of the light on video that reflected the pattern.
