|Red and white flashing light moving in a tight, eratic pattern in the northern sky
A red light that periodically flashed with white light was seen from Butler, PA in the northern sky. From my perspective the object was located within the region between the big dipper pointer stars and polaris. The object did not move in a straight path. It did not deviate much from it's location. It only shifted about in a tight, eratic pattern. I observed the object for approximately a half of an hour. I reported my sighting to the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh by phone. The gentleman there said he could not see the object from his location in Frazier, PA.
