|yellowish green flash moved from the south east to the north in a curve followed buy a jet 5 mins later
I was looking in the sky to see if I saw any activity going on and to watch the stars in the sky. It was a pretty clear night with just maybe a little bit of haze and no sight of any air traffic in the sky. So after about a half hour saw the first flash in the south east sky it was yellowish green in color and at first I thought I had just seen a lightning bug. so I watched for it again but wasnt there 5 sec. later i seen it again this time closer to me and I could tell that it was not a lightning bug it was way way to high in the sky. It flashed two more times right after that in diffrent but close prox. from the last and when the last one flashed I saw a very dim light come from the flsah moving north until I could not see it any more. I then got my cell phone and checked the time it was 2:30 a.m. After seening that and woundering what it was I found my self glued to the sky and about 5 mins. later I see a small fast moving jet of some kind coming from the same direction as the flashes of light from the south east and heading the same course as the flashes south east to northly curve. Jet was like I said small and had a red light on the bottom with a wight strobe and near the tail end of the jet on the top a yellow strobe and a orangish glow like fighter jets have. I checke my cell phone it was 2:35 a.m.
