I was looking toward the west trying to find a comet that I had read about last week.

I noticed a blinking mostly white/ red / green light that looked like a plane.

For a half hour it stayed in the same spot, moving lower on the horizon behind a tree until I couldn't see it anymore.

At first I thought it was a hovering helicopter, but it did not move.

Very evident Green and Red flashing around the white center.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witness was observing a "twinkling" star, but that is only a guess. We have corrected the date above. PD))
