|a flashing stationary white light with two constant red lights on the same side- then a moving light further away traveling fast with a trail
I noticed a flashing light through the window similar to what a plane looks like at night. I didn't pay much attention until I noticed several minutes later that the object had not moved. It was too high for a helicopter to hover and we live in a rural mountainous area with no reason for a helicopter to hover at night. I got my binoculars to check it out and it seemed so strange I called my wife to come look. She also got binoculars and we watched it for several minutes. She also said it looked very strange. Then we noticed another object much farther away and above the stationary object, that was travelling very fast and leaving a trail similar to a comets trail. It also was a white light but so far away that that was all we could see. The stationary object had a bright pulsating light that flashed about once a second. Between flashes you could see two red lights both on the right side of the white light. While we continued to watch it a plane came into view flying toward us and the lights on the object immediately went out.
