|Circular Craft Flashing a Red Beam
We were driving down the road when my friend stopped his truck, saying he saw something in the sky. It was a clear night and where we were you could see most of the stars.
We got out, and at first I could only see the moon, until the moon started moving back and forth in the sky. It became stationary again, and started flashing a red beam. There didn't seem to be any pattern to the flashing - sometimes it would be a long beam, then off, then two short beams, something like that. The craft stopped flashing, and flew away behind the mountain. The entire event took place for about 10 minutes.
I know this happened a while ago, but I saw a similiar report posted from Hungry Horse and thought it might be helpful.
