Occurred: 2014-08-31 12:30 Local
Reported: 2014-09-01 00:17 Pacific
Duration: 45 seconds
No of observers: 2

Location: Bellingham, WA, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Lights on object

Orange light/flare rising quickly, changing directions fairly rapidly, blinking twice then disappearing.

Orange light in the South/East, me and my friend were out smoking on the porch. The light was very consistent color and bright, like it could have been a flare. I saw it through binoculars and I couldn't discern any shape.

After it got a ways into the sky it changed directions, either heading towards or away from us. It dimmed quickly, brightened, dimmed again, brightened, then disappeared.

Very little to no wind, and I confirmed this by watching the clouds move in relation to the few visible stars.

My roommate said that he saw this exact object earlier in August, but I don't know when.
