|Stationary white, green and red lights in the northeast sky. What is it?
A group of 8 just returned from a fishing trip to a fishing resort near Kenora, Ontario, Canada. Saturday evening September 2nd I saw what appeared to be a bright twinkling star to the northeast of my location. As a former BioMedical Photographer I wished I had my camera and telescope to attempt to take some pictures. As I observed it more I thought it to be unusual due to the fact that the star didn't so much twinkle as it blinked in color between white, red and green. I didn't give it much thought other than wishing I could take some pictures thinking it was Mars being so close to the earth this past August. Sunday evening the 3rd of September a group of 6 were sitting on the porch at our cabin when a member pointed to the northeast sky and asked "What in the world is that?" He was stunned at the appearance of what seemed to be a star blinking between the colors of white, red and green. I mentioned to him and the rest of the group that I had seen the same thing the night before which was on going until I went to bed around 10 p.m. The six of us sat that evening for hours debating what it could possibly be. I am convinced it was just a star or planet but I am not convinced it was Mars. Should Mars have not been more to the east or east-southeast of where we were? What strikes me is upon observing it at 20:35 on Sunday evening until we all went to bed at 23:00 the position of the "star" had not changed. The rotation of the earth in a 2.5 hour period should have put the position further west as the evening went on. I do believe in UFO's due to the fact that me and my best friend saw one up close in the early 1980's. I am not convinced this was a UFO but I am not convinced it is a star or a planet. Were all wondering what it is. This has been an on going topic of conversation within our group to this day. Were an educated group ranging from agronomists, financial experts, successful business owners and a professional photographer. Were are very curious and are looking for ! an answe r. I am going out tonight, September 5th to see if I can see it from home in North Dakota. I'll let you know.
