Light over Southern Indiana town of Crandall

The strange multi-colored blinking light in the sky is back over Crandall again, for two nights in a row now. It was here last Tuesday and Wednesday nights, but I did not see it over the weekend due to low clouds and thunderstorms. This time around it did not appear in the exact same spot the two consecutive nights, rather it appeared in slightly more easterly tonight than it did last night. Last night there was what sounded like a single engine plane that cut a wide berth around the object, but then went on its towards Louisville. The thing looks a lot like the North Star times five, though it blinks wildly between white, red, blue, green, and yellow...but mostly looks white. Having observed it for many nights now, I've almost got myself convinced that it's a particularly bright star. But this is impossible. I know of no star that instead of rising and setting, simply appears (although I have not witnessed this) at 3am and vanishes between 5 and 6 in the morning.


Suspected sighting of a "twinkling" star. PD
