|Solid bright red light, with intermittent white flashing while hovering in a stationary location
We saw a bright, solid red light hovering to the South of us. It stopped moving, and then flashed a white light (like a camera) about a dozen times. Then the red light moved a bit West, stopped and flashed white again. The red light was constant. The flashing white was something extra.
It was higher than I would think a civilian drone could fly. Lower than most planes, higher than most helicopters we see.
It would hover while flashing. Then it would move South and West, then stop and flash again. A few times it flashed the white light while moving, but most of the time it would stop – flash – then move again.
The flash couldn’t be for taking pictures because it was night and the flash wouldn’t do any good that distance from the ground? A helicopter flew past our house in the direction of the light a minute later, but there is a hospital in that direction so that may be unrelated.
The thing eventually disappeared behind houses to the South of us.
