while driving home from pre christmass dinner, OUr family began to pay attention what we thought was an airplane. However, the object although distant, had multicolor. We decided to follow it. After trying get close, meaning at 10 miles away, the object was then seen in the opposite direction. We follow it. At home we film it with a digital camera. The interesting thing about object is that it had a periodic burst of blue light like fireworks. We zoom on the object with a tripod and the object appeared to be moving to right the camera. At about 400x enhancment the documented on film was well defined.

((NUFORC Note: The report seems to us to be not inconsistent with a planet or "twinkling" star. PD))
