Shape: Light
Duration:~1 hour
Very bright and flashing light right near the airport 3 times now

I witnessed a light on Saturday night near the Columbus airport in a neighborhood close by. I watched it for at least 2 hours and it seemed to move occasionally. It was much bigger than a star and would pulsate and flash or blink. Sometimes it would go much dimmer.i took many videos and zoomed way in with a camera app on my phone to took several photoa. They are not the best quality but the object seems to have a circle in the middle of an x in the visible ones. My phone kept shutting off as if I had no battery even though it was well charged.

Eventually I left and was wondering what it could have been. My friend whos house it was didn't think it was a ufo of any kind and blew the idea off.

July 3rd late at night we saw the same light in the same exact spot and I felt embarrassed thinking I must have been wrong about the ufo idea. It must be a satellite or something else. I'm not sure but two times in the same spot made me doubt myself. Then there was last ni! ght July the 4th. I saw the same light again. It seemed brighter and this time there was also a 2nd one a ways across the sky.

I was no certain something is going on and when I went inside to get my phone to take a picture I came back out and it was completely gone. The first light remained there and didn't seem to do anything strange. Aside from the occasional flashes and blinks it never flew or moved. It seemed to just stay in the same place.

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of Mars, we wonder? PD))
