|2 different moving lights over Duluth.
I was outside playing pool with my sister in-law about 9:30 tonight. I wasn't playing well, and looked up and asked for help from the heavens, and noticed a star that was moving. It looked like a regular star and it was directly above us. We ar right under the flight path for Hartsfield-Jackson airport, so I KNOW it was not a plane, it wasn't even taking the flight path. It moved east, made a slow turn to the north, back to the east, blinked three times, shot a little red light to it's right side, and blinked off. In this time, we ran from the back yard, to the front yard, because of trees blocking the line of sight. As we were returning to our game, I saw a bright light in the sky through the trees to the west, we saw a large orange/red light. That changed from orange to red to orange. it was moving slowly to the west, and at first, it was really bright, and then it blinked off and on, but when it turned on again, it was dimmer than when it had started, it kept getting dimmer and dimmer, and before we lost sight of it, it turned red. it was too bug to be a star or plane, in fact, we saw several planes pass in front of it which were higher than it seemed to be, but looked much smaller than the light. I'm 2 years new to the area, so I wonder if anyone else saw this, and wonder how often this occurs in such a high air-traffic area.
