Duration:app.1min.
BLUE/WHITE LIGHT APPEARED IN SKY,IT FLASHED INTENSELY THEN DIMMED AND ACCELERATED HORIZONTALLY,THEN SLOWED TO A STOP WHILE ITS LIGHT SOURCE THEN EXTINGUISHED.

MY GIRLFRIEND AND I WERE USING A HIGH POWER SPOT LIGHT AND SIGNALLING INTO THE SKY.ROUGHLY 20 MINUTES PASSED OF INTERMITTENT FLASHING WHEN SUDDENLY A BLUE/WHITE LIGHT APPEARED AT A 60 DEG. ANGLE AND SINCE HEIGHTH IS DIFFICULT TO JUDGE I WOULD SAY IN EXCESS OF 10'000FT. AT THIS POINT THE BLUE/WHITE LIGHT FLASHED INTENSELY AS TO COPY THE SAME SIGNALS THAT WE WERE USING WITH THE SPOTLIGHT. IT THEN ACCELERATED HORIZONTALLY,THEN SLOWED TO A STOP WHEN THE LIGHT SOURCE FADED. APPROX. DURATION OF SIGHTING WAS 1 MIN. NOTE: ALTHOUGH THIS IS NOT RELATED TO THE ABOVE SIGHTING, ITS WORTH MENTIONING THAT ON TWO OTHER OCASSIONS WE WERE ABLE THROUGH THE SPOTLIGHT SIGNALLING TO BE WITNESS TO OTHER ANAMOLOUS LIGHTS, THAT IN MY OPINION CANNOT BE EXPLAINED BY THE STATUS QUO OF INFORMATION THAT I AM AWARE OF INVOLVING AERIAL PHENOMENON,ETC.
