flashing lites over the gulf

I saw lites flashing red green and white. It was over the gulf of mexico it just hovered in the same position for at least an hour. I left the beach and it was stil visible. I could also see a light on the water. I had to use binoculars to see the light movement. I also saw several airplanes in the area that where at different altitudes and where moving, this craft or what ever it was stayd in the same position kind of like a star but it had the lights kind of like a running lites that changed colors.

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the report is not inconsistent with the many reports of the star, "Sirius," which is visible in the southern sky at this time of year. PD))
