|Light with green flashing light on bottom, east of me about 10 o'clock position over next county, noticed while trying to view northern lights & looking at stars. Not sure what it was but zigzaged slightly & hovered. Took several pictures
Only saw one. About 10 minutes later noticed several aircraft "flying" around object, with one doing a "summersault". All of a sudden they left, & "light" hovered for the next 2 to 3 hours, while rising slowly &zig~zaging slghtly. It also seemed to "bounce" a few times. All I could see was a bright light, really small, & thru my binoculars I could see a flashing green light under the bright light. I took several pictures. Not sure what it was. For all I know, It could have been a planet, as it was east of me before sunrise. I'll see what the pictures say. However, the green flashing light is what made me wonder more! Note: there were the brihtest northern lights from a sun solar flare & magnetic storm. Supposedly the brightest of this century.
