Duration:06:00
glowing golden with red flashes at 78 degrees north east. Alt about 2000 feet . had wobbling effect when red fashes occoured about every half second.

At 05:00 me and my associate were outside work. Skywatching a object weve seen four times. It was about two thousand feet altitiude and glowing a golden color. It flashed about every half second a red pulse of some sort. I rationalize it's heating the atmosphere. The object was seemed to hover in that location but had a wobbling effect similiar to the coriolis effect . In my binos , I tried to determine the range. My associate used his compass to get it's direction. It was 78 degrees north east. With daylight it faded to a point. Then a field around this object surrounded it and it disappeared by 06:00 a.m. also a airliner flew past this object and didn't seem to acknolge it's location.
