Posted: 9/24/2012
Location: Monte Verde (Costa Rica),
Shape: Cone
Duration:30 minutes
Very bright lights of blue green red and white shining from a stationary object in the sky for 30 minutes.

At about 7:45 costa rica time I went out on the porch to look at the sky, the sky was mostly clear with light clouds moving through. Towards the west I saw a very bright object in the sky and it was flashing really bright white, red, blue and green light out from it, the object stayed in one place and at one point a jet leaving San Jose, Costa Rica flew towards the object but flew under it by quite a bit, I did notice as the jet and the object were in the same part of the sky the objects lights where a much brighter and clearer colors than the jet that flew by and the object had a bright green and a bright blue light that would shine from it.

I watched it for at least 30 minutes and it never moved, I had a spotter scope that I was looking at it through and the colors coming off of it were so bright and clear, at some point the light coming from it got less bright and the clouds started to move in and I lost my references with it, but it did seem to move furt! her away from me after about 30 minutes. At one point while I was watching it a much smaller light moved across the sky from one side to the other in a straight line and consistent speed, could have been a satilite but it was not very bright I almost couldn't track it through my spotter scope.
