Full Description of event/sighting: It was just after midnight on Aug.3/07 when a group of 8 of us just finished watching a movie. My little sister and I went out on our Southeast facing deck to have a smoke. I looked to the South and saw this bright twinkling object. At first I didn't point it out to my sis because I thought it must be a plane, but it started just getting brighter in the same spot but moving irregular. At that point I showed her and asked her what she thought that was and her initial reaction was a plane and I told her I was already watching it a little and it was not a plane. We called everyone in the house out to see what they thought. One of the witnesses actually spotted the same type of object 2 nights before. Everything they thought of we ruled out, too quick but stationary to be a satellite, too many irregular movements to be a plane, even thought of the space station because on the odd night the space station catches that sun and lights up like a beacon sailing at steady speed across the sky that dims low and will light up brighter than anything else up there several times in it's pass across the sky. The thought of a comet even struck but was soon dismissed. No way was it a weather balloon. I have seen all of these and they didn't match what we were seeing.
At it's brightest you could tell it was not in the lower atmosphere but much higher and you could see it making small micro movements (as I call them) that could be made out in triangular patterns and figure eight patterns. What started off as the faint twinkle of alternating red/white light was now 2 distinguishable red and white lights encompassed by these brilliant blue lights that would illuminate in a clockwise sequence. The blue lights weren't constant though. It was almost as if it had moods and the lights would light up once or twice then take a break for a few seconds then flash a few quick ones. It continued to do this random flashing almost the whole time. It spent about 20 minutes in it's original spot then the following 20 minutes it made it's way to the Southwestern horizon using the micro movements. At it's position in the Southwestern sky it was too far away to see the blue lights. You could still see the micro movements faintly and barely make out the twinkle of the red/white lights. By that time everyone pretty much went to bed except for a couple of us. I thought the show was pretty much over when about 15 minutes in it's Southwestern position it made it's way back to the original spot in roughly the same 20 minute time frame. This time it was much, much brighter but didn't look any closer than the first time. It stayed there for another 20 - 30 minutes then with the brilliant flashing and amazing movements it worked it's way in a zig zag pattern straight down and disappeared below the tree line.
I would estimate that we watched it from 12:05am - 1:30am to 1:45am Can't be exact on the time frame because we were in awe of what we were witnessing. I am no expert in this matter but I do have my Commercial Pilot's License and one of the other witnesses has an extensive background on aircraft and we both agree that there is nothing in that sky that the public is aware of that can move like that or have such a complex lighting system. I have pictures too but not too sure how to upload them.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
