Glowing white circle/oval with dark center emitting flashes of light
On July 25, 2020, at 8:30 p.m., while looking due south at approximately 45 degrees elevation, I witnessed bright object that, when viewed with the naked eye, looked like it could be Venus on its brightest night. When looking at the same object through binoculars, I discovered that the object was slightly oval shaped . . .and looked just like a glowing white musical whole note with a dark/shadowy center. It remained stationary, not moving left or right, up or down. The bottom half of the object emitted continuous flashes of light in rapid succession in what looked like random locations always emitting from the bottom half of the object.
After the sun went down the sky began to darken, the object moved further into the distance (gaining altitude), taking on a reddish hue until a passing cloud hid it from my view. At this late point, it was only visible through binoculars (at least until the cloud covered it from my view). The next evening, I looked at the same part of the sky at the same time of the evening to see if I should see anything again. I saw nothing.
