Duration: hours
No of observers: 6

Location: Sterling, VA, USA

Shape: Unknown
Characteristics: Lights on object, Aura or haze around object, Emitted beams, Changed Color, Aircraft nearby

Large flashing lights in sky that seemed cohesive but stationary- red, blue, white flashes.

In the night sky close to midnight I saw what I thought was a plane or helicopter but realized it did not move. It was stationary and very bright, flashing red, blue and white lights.

I estimated it to be 2-3 miles away at medium altitude. It appeared very large- bigger than an airliner.

I watched it flash for at least 30 minutes at work.

Upon returning home I noticed it was still in the sky and it demonstrated the same characteristics. It absolutely did not move. The flashing lights would increase and decrease in intensity.

I watched it from my apartment complex parking lot for another 30 minutes at least. I saw it, bar workers from my neighboring workplace saw it and my child saw it.

At some points we saw it seem to emit beams- white in color.

It seemed to have a haze around it at points.

Will send poor quality video later.
