|Bright light due south, traveling east extremely slowly. Bright flash given off from object every 10 seconds, with a dim flash every 3 seconds.
A friend, ((name deleted)), called at about 9:30pm. He asked if I was looking at an object in the sky that was moving slowly and flashing regularly. I had not been, so he gave me directions. The first time I looked, I did not see it. I called ((name deleted)) back and got more precise directions. This time I saw it... A bright light, flashing every 10 seconds with a bright white light, and every 2.5 to 3 seconds with a dim light. I called my wife, ((name deleted)), out to see if she could confirm what I saw and she did. I called((name deleted)) back to reconfirm what we were seeing, and had exact timing on the flashes. For the 15 minutes that I witnessed the object, it only moved about the width of an adult man's thumb, at arms length, from the reference star. It was heading east across the sky directly south of my house. I called Peter Davenport to make a report. I am 33 yrs. old and have 3 children. I am finishing my degrees in college in zoology and mechanical engineering.
