Shape: Light
Duration:hours
((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness may have been observing "twinkling" stars. PD))

There are 5 objects appearing in the sky. The objects do not have a visible shape. From our perspective, they are all within about a few miles from each other in the SE sky. The brightest object appears in the SE sky closest to the horizon and cannot be made out with a novice's telescope or binoculars. It is bright and is blinking the whole spectrum of light, almost like the sun is reflecting light off of something. They are moving very slowly. They appear to stay in the same place looking at them with the naked eye, but viewing through a telecope, the position has to be changed like a slow orbiting planet. We have been viewing them for about an hour now. Even thought they look like they are hovering over Renton or Tacoma, (Maybe even farther South & East), you can deduce that they are along ways away.

Is this some sort of a beacon or satellites that are reflecting light. I see purple, red, blue, white, orange, etc. The light is almost blinding looking at it from a telescope. You cannot tell any kind of shape because the light is too bright. It looks like a police car hovering in the sky at a great distance.
