Duration:few minutes
5-6 rapidly blinking lights seen travelling in a straight line.

In the distance traveling across the northern sky, a series of five-six lights were blinking a in a rapid pattern. These lights were very small, and there wer no other shapes visible. They were travelling in a straight line, and the lights were flashing 5-6 times in a second, then they would have two seconds off or so, and then blink again. The five lights wer not timed together. They somewhat changed colors--mostly white, but every third or fourth blink it would be red or blue. They travelled out of sight in ENE direction. There were no sounds, and it is a very clear night. I would think they were quite a distance away. I would guess that they were helicopters, but I have never seen lights behave thay way before. The blinks of light were different time lengths--not all five blinks were on the same amount of time.
