We where in campground 49A in Green Ridge State Forest in MD that was a long wide sloping field with tree's on either side deep in the woods me and 2 friends from work where out camping and it had been raining all day and the stars had finaly come out. I was remarking on how bright the stars where when I saw what appered to be a small plane's NAV lights they where very bright flashing red, green and white lights coming over the ridge of the mountain. I had a MAG light flashlight and flashed it once at what I thought was a plane. After I flashed the flashlight the light disapered and reappered very high overhead in all of about 3 sec moving very fast like a satillite in a northerly direction flashing in three colors then it started moving in 90 degree turn's that lasted for about 2 second's each and it moved off to the northwest into the trees not to be seen again.
