I was filming the lunar eclipse on 10/28/04 with my two daughters when we noticed several bright white objects that seemed to be stars but were very close. We thought we could see them flashing red, blue and green. When I zoomed up in on them I was shocked to see that they were pulsating like a welding machine and had red, blue and green flashes. As I zoomed to high power with my digital camcorder you can see a definite counter clockwise rotation and the objects slowly moved upwards from just above the trees up to the 11:00 position. This took at least an hour and the objects flashed intermittently as if communicating with each other. We watched them off and on through the night and at one point there were as many as 8-10 around us with 5 or 6 making a draping effect from the sky down to the top of the trees like a fishing line going to the water. They were east of us in the direction of a microwave tower which is about 3 miles away. Like cars waiting at the gas station. It was strange to say the least. I made a tape of it and took it to work. None knew what it was but we knew what it wasn't. It wasn't swamp gas, ball lightening, an airplane, skylab, and I don't think they were sattelites or planets. But I would like for someone to tell me it is nothing and to sit back down. We have seen them nearly every night since. As well as some other spheres that turn on like spot lights and travel about halfway across the sky and then just turn off. I have seen this three times and my daughter saw it again on Saturday night 10/30/04 and she was scared and believes me now.
