|Blinking/fast moving light in clear sky
My family watched the firework display from a local baseball game. My parents live a short distance from the ballpark, so we were not affected by the stadium lights. The light show is intense, similar to a 4th of July display. The sky was fairly clear, stars visible. After a huge starburst of fireworks, I noticed a light emerge from the starburst. I thought it was an errant rocket from the show. But it moved MUCH faster and moved away from the lights emitted from the display. And much faster than a private plane. It was moving horizontal and staying at level altitude..south to north about 60 degrees in the western sky. The light was blinking on and off at an inconsistent rate. When off, a small object could be seen blocking the view of the stars. It could also been seen moving erratically. It must have been about 500 to 1000 ft. in altitude because it was cutting through the smoke of the display. There was no sound AT ALL. I don't think it was a charge gone bad because there was no sound and it was not emitting a trail of any kind. Also, such charges do not fly perfectly horizontal. My brother-in-law also saw this. I have an elec. engineering background and have my own business. My brother-in-law was a technical manager for chip fab at a high tech company. We were not drinking anything other than water and sodas that night. We saw the light for about 4 seconds until it disappeared behind some houses...we compared notes and agree on the details of our sighting.
