Reported: 8/20/2017 2:06:46 AM 02:06
Posted: 8/24/2017
Location: Montello, NV
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
High-flying, flashing light over Pilot Valley, Elko County, Nevada.

Nothing special. I also had observed the same thing a few months ago in the same place (Pilot valley, NE Nevada.) A high altitude, slow moving object, flashing a bright light every 5-10 seconds.

Watched for a few minutes, but lost it as the light got dimmer. Could not actually see object, just the light burst from it. Bursts would last about 0.5 seconds.

It was not consistent with an aircraft or satellite.
