Location: North Kingstown, RI
Shape: Light
Duration:2 1/2 hours
Bright light, sunny afternoon sky, Aug. '89. Stationary for 2 hrs. plus, highly visible, eerie.

This is in response to a query 1/18/05 about a bright"flashlite" type light in the sky, which remained for duration of two hours.

This occured in Aug.1989, about the 20th+ or -. Was with a disabled friend in an East-facing enclosed porch with a very large glass wall/ window. Bright sunlight. A very bright occasionally flashing object suddenly appeared in the Southeast at about 70 degrees above the horizon-- it was larger than a dot-- about the size of a pea held at arm's length. It remained clearly there for about 2 1/2 hours, and was stationary. It brightened and dimmed periodically, then suddenly blinked out. Never saw it again. Because of the date, and the memorable sighting of the object/light-- when I read the GA report-- I found a remarkable connection/coincidence.
