Strange shape moved from horizon to Apex with flashing strobe white light

I saw exaclty as the picture already drawn saw. It was almost like a cloud, but had the definate shape as drawn on the web site. Actually got to get my telescope out to look at it. Definitely saw the flashing light. I first saw it about 20 degrees above horizon, and thought it was a comet. It was about magnitude 1.0, thats what caught my eye, and as an amatuer sky watcher, knew there wasn't supposed to be something in the sky at that regionat at this time. Ran and got binoculars, and could not figure out what it was, so I ran to get my wife and telescope. It rose to about 80 degrees above the horizon, getting fainter and fainter, but could still see the strope light.

From my position it was in the southwest sky. After about 10 minutes, it was almost opaque against the dark sky. Thats what my wife and I saw. We came into the house, and both drew what we saw on paper, and it was just like the image on your website. As I live near a major airport, planes were still flying as normal landing patterns.

Wow!! I never thought I would actually see a UFO. Keep looking up. Thanks
