|Strange light display and manuvers low over Weston/Redding border
Last night at 8pm I looked out my living room window and noticed a flashing bright red light low on the horizon a mile or so away over the Devil’s Den area on the Weston/Redding border. It was low in the sky and unusually bright, much brighter than any airplane lights, flashing and drifting very slowly.
I took out my binoculars and while looking at it noticed two things. It was actually several red and white lights flashing together, very bright and had an L.E.D. quality to the light. The red and white flashing lights were unnaturally pure and bright. There was also a small orange, glowing, perfectly round light much dimmer (the color was similar to a setting sun but much smaller. Just a dot) that seemed to be pulsing in concert with the much brighter red and white lights below it. It appeared as if the small orange dot was pulsing in communication with the lights below it. This small orange ball was a separate object judging from the distance above and off to the side of the red/white object.
After observing this thru the binoculars for several minutes the red and white lights separated into two distinct objects. One red and one white. These two objects flew around each other doing what seemed to be impossible maneuvering at an extremely high rate of speed over a very small area. Almost like two huge laser beam points dancing in concert together. The red and white objects were traveling so rapidly in close proximity to each other that they appeared at times as one red and one white streak of light "dancing" together creating pretzel like shapes. The whole time, the orange dot was also observed and kept its relationship to the slow drifting red/white display going on below it.
After observing this for about 5 minutes the objects slowly drifted below the horizon behind the tree tops. I continued to look in the direction with my binoculars for about an hour but saw nothing else out of the ordinary. I will definitely be looking in the same direction at the same time tonight to see if it happens again.
