Bright Welders Arc Light In The Night Skys Over New Albany Indiana

Ive been seeing this object now for over 3 years till this very day and also see it about every night and wanted to share it with all who may have seen the same object or may find this object very interesting as i have. To see this object it's best to get outdoors about 15 mintes before dusk and anytime there after before midnight. allthough ive seen it at all hours from dusk till sunrise. This object may appear as a star in the night sky with no movement at times. The object appears mostly as a slow moving star at first and seems to have i very high altitude and moving along as the speed of a high flying commercial airliner. Sometimes it will stop in mid movement also for as long as 15 seconds take or give a few. The most startling thing about this object is it will turn a very bright welders arc bluish white for sometimes as long as 15 seconds then go dim to a very faint like star and go completly accross the horizon till dissapearing. This object will appear at any point in the night sky. Sometimes at the zenith, sometimes at the horizon, any location in the night sky this object may appear. I have observed it 1 time to go from a very bright spotlight like light to a sapphire blue in color. Im still seeing this object to this day along with 5 other witnesses.

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the description is reminiscent of a twinkling star. PD))
