|sky lights western n.y.
sky was partly to mostly cloudy,while driving north toward rochester n.y. lights where seen in a cloudy part of the sky, that pulsed bright white to red. the pulsing lights stayed in the same part of the sky(a relatively small area directly over a small grove of trees)at times they would stop and start.about15 other cars pulled off the road to watch,one person got out a camcorder. after a while a helicopter approached from the direction of the rochester airport. the strobing seemed mechcanical not natural,i have seen the aurora,this was too local to be it. any info as to what that was would be appreciated.
