Shape: Unknown
Duration:all night
Red, white, green flashing light in two bright objects on opposite sides of ORIONS BELT in night sky. Geosynchronous satellites?

On each side of Orions Belt stars there are two objects of brighter magnitude. With naked eye they flicker, with binoculars they demonstrate red, white and green colors at regular intervals as if rotating like a search light. They were there all night and are still there 26 December 1998. There was another one seen in November however more difficult to describe where it is. Seems to be further west from the other two. It also flickered with those colors. Question is do many of those satallites up there have any red and green flashing lights like airplanes do and boats do to tell left from right? If so why in space? How many of those satallites up there have flashing red and green lights?
