|Bright light with no FAA lights spotted over Sandy Springs area.
My mother and I were driving down Abernathy road away from 400 towards Roswell road when we spotted what we thought was a helicopter just underneath the clouds on our left at about a 10 o'clock position. I didn't see any FAA lights nor the standard Red rotating light that most helicopters use. We did see one of those further up the street. Just a red light on the bottom.
This object was stationary and not blinking, just a light. We lost it when the clouds drew over the area.
As we parked the car and looked back at the stars, we noticed that Sirius A was very bright as well, but not at all the brightness nor color of the light we saw earlier.
