My brother and I went outside to have a smoke and then noticed a moving, multicolored light in the sky. It would move only a few degrees, both verticaly and lateraly. It wasn't a specific color, but changed colors. It would bob and move in small circles. It also seemed to have a two prominent spikes; one going off to the left, and one off the top. The object looked as though it were no closer than a satellite. (However, my brother and I speculated that this could not be a satellite because it didn't move enough, it changed colors, and it was in roughly the same spot over a period of about two hours. Both of us are sure it wasn't a star--it was too big and moved; however, if forced to guess what this object was, I would have to say a large star whose light was bent by oscillations in the earths atmosphire..is that possible? I did take several pictures with a manual camera--they are being developed. I wonder if there is an agency (NASA maybe?) who can scan the pictures, identify the stars, and then tell me what the object is? Can anyone help me? Anyone else see this? E-mail me at: ((e-address deleted)) As soon as I have the pictures (if they turn out), I will provide a link for people to examine them.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect a twinkling star may have been the cause of the sighting. PD))
