|My friend and I were at the beach and around 2 a.m. we were outside on a balcony looking west toward the water. I looked up in the sky (higher than many of the clouds) and saw a bright light that was flashing green and red.
We went inside and got binoculars in order to get a closer look. It appeared to have 2 green lights on the bottom, one green light on the top and a red light circling around in the middle.
We watched it in one spot for about one hour when it started to fade away and within 2-3 minutes it just disappeared.
We have no idea what we saw. Definitely was not a plane or helicopter because it didn't move for 1 hour. Not a tower because it was over the Gulf of Mexico and I don't think it was a satellite, because it was flashing distinct red and green lights and I do not believe satellites look like that in the sky.
Did anyone happen to see this recently as well?
