|twinkling star to naked eye, blue and red flashing lights, change shape in binoculars
unusually twinkly star, not real bright. Get binoculars, ex husband looks and says, Damn these binoculars work good. There's blue and red flashing lights coming from it." I looked and saw it to be a round shaped white light with flashing Blue light on the left side of object and red on the other. Amazing to see, but could only see the distinct light through binocs, otherwise looked like a slowly moving satellite or star. I look back about 2 -3 mins later, but the flashing lights were gone, now there was only a single red light sitting on top of the object! Shocking and exciting to see! I looked again 2 mins later, no red or blue lights at all and the shape of the white light had changed entirely. For one it was not horizontal anymore, it was more vertical and now it was shaped like a long hotdog and pointed on an incline towards the heavens! Weird, it was moving more and more away into space slowly and our eyes were tired. I think it is a satellite, My ex husb. says satellites don't have blue lights on them or change shape.
((NUFORC Note: We do not know for certain what the witnesses observed, but it is reminiscent of a "twinkling" star. They always appear to change color, change shape, and to move slightly, as the witness has described. No other reports from San Antonio for this date. PD))
