Occurred: 2012-02-02 20:15 Local
Reported: 2012-02-02 18:52 Pacific
Duration: 15 minutes
No of observers: 1

Location: Henderson, NY, USA

Shape: Unknown
Characteristics: Lights on object

A large bright orange colored light with 2 or 3 smaller lights surrounding it.

saw a bright orangish light hovering over lake ontario. thought it might have been mars or venus because of the color but it was a lot bigger and brighter than i've ever seen either of them. the object seemed to stay still in the sky for about 10 or 15 minutes. when i looked at it through a pair of binoculars i could see a red light and a white colored light and possibly a third light that looked like it may have been white. it looked almost like the lights were in a triangular shape but it was hard to tell because there was a lot of glare from the brightness.

after a while it appeared to move to the right(north) a little bit and then after sitting still for a couple more minutes it slowly started moving in what appeared to be a southwestern direction (toward oswego ny) until i was no longer able to see it over the tree line.


Sighting of Venus. Timing is correct for Venus, which currently is in the southwest sky, during the early evening. PD
