Posted: 4/28/2001
Location: Madison, AL
Shape: Flash
Duration: 5+ minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Purple and green blinking stationary object.

At first, I thought that the object might be a satellite or star, but then I noticed that it was blinking. I went inside my house and grabbed my binoculars for a better look. Upon closer inspection, the object had lights on it that were blinking purple and green, but no other features could be determined. I called my wife out so she could see it, but she couldn't tell any more about it than I could. After several minutes of staring at it do nothing but blink, I decided to go back inside.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witnesses may have been observing the star, "Sirius," in the southern sky. We receive many reports about that star. PD))
