Green light illuminating my window, but from no source.

I am reporting this here as recommended by someone who heard my situation.

Woke up around 6am to the dog jumping on my bed and running in a circle before running away, never barking as she would if there was something or someone outside. I tried to go back to sleep but realized there was something lighting up my room. Again, tried to ignore the light thinking it was a neighbor going to work or something, but 20 minutes later I am still trying to get to sleep and the light was so bright I could see it flashing even though my eyes were closed.

I got out of bed and crept around the dark room looking outside for signs of someone messing with me, or a car, etc - nothing. My only 2 neighbors at the top of this dead end hill were already gone for work. I realized the light was only on one side of the room, in the window , illuminating it in the same way a lightning bug would, except it illuminated the whole 5 feet of window space/frame. I looked all around inside the room, in the windowsill, and what I could see from the window, nothing but the uphill sight of trees with so much snow I can see anything that moves out there, but saw nothing and heard nothing.

At this point I got scared, because I realized the only place it could be coming from that I couldn’t see, was directly underneath the window: a place I couldn’t see unless I went outside and I was too scared. The next day, though, I checked and there were no footsteps or marks in the snow so that wasn’t where the light was coming from.

I have blue solar lights out there, but this light was green like christmas light green. The light was on steady for 10 seconds, off for 5, and it lasted so long that after not being able to find the cause I got into bed with a knife and just sat listening for sounds, to get up and react to, nothing but the light, and I fell asleep counting the seconds of the light pulses, strangely seeing it with my eyes closed.

I live on the edge of a large uninhabited area that borders a rock quarry. Also close to the borderline between Binghamton, NY, and Conklin, NY, where I see there was a reporting 50+ years ago. A lot of military contract type of businesses (BAE, IBM, Lockheed, etc) so I haven’t thought twice about the military (looking) helicopter I see or hear 2-3 times a week but wouldn’t you know that the day after these lights scared me, Helicopter (or multiple) kept going over this house repeatedly, at least 10 times between 9 am and noon, to the point that I stopped paying attention.

Just for the record, the only other strange thing here is once in awhile I hear a helicopter sound like it is right above but then there will be nothing there, absolutely no craft yet the sound as if it is close.
