Shape: Circle
Duration: 30 sec

Bright Flashes

All we saw was the craft flying over and is flashed three times about ten seconds apart ... It was a satilite or plane ... the flashes were very bright and you could tell that they were very high in altitude ... Thats it

((NUFORC Note: We do not have much information to work with here, but the description is reminiscent of a tumbling rocket booster ("ullage") in orbit. Like a baseball bat thrown by a batter, a rocket will tumble, making its brightness in the night sky fluctuate. PD))
