Witnessed flashing lights again in same part of sky as previous sighting

On Sunday, 11/29, at about 8 pm we saw and reported a UFO. The same two witnesses saw what appeared to be the same UFO last night, at about 6 pm, in the same part of the sky. This most recent sighting lasted about 2 minutes, and occurred near the northern horizon, which was the only patch of sky clear of clouds.

A bright white light flashed a couple of times to the NNE, attracting our attention. As we had had the previous sighting, I grabbed my binoculars to view this light, which we initially suspected to be an airliner. Instead, I immediately saw that it was the same group of lights or object with several randomly flashing lights. It was dim enough that it was only visible with the binoculars, once the bright white flashing light stopped flashing.

The object moved west, estimated at about 200 mph, then disappeared behind the mountains to the north. These mountains are about 8 miles from our house, and the object appeared to subtend 2 to 3 degrees of horizon. This would give it a width of 1,800', if eight miles away.

It did not have the legally required navigation and anti-collision lights that all aircraft must display during hours of darkness: red navigation light on left wing tip, green on right plus white anti-collision strobes. The object only had randomly flashing lights of various colors.

We are both professionals and have been involved in general aviation and in the airline business for years.
