Duration:12 minutes
This was like a "string theory" energy light show, initially mistaken for a distant approaching aircraft.

What first appeared to be a distant aircraft with green, red, (blue intermittently) and white lights, never seemed to move from its original spot. However, the lights appeared to be moving in a very erratic/random fashion. Looking through binoculars, the lights appeared to be circular dots chasing one another. The effect was similar to when you move a sparkler quickly and randomly; thus seeming to create what resembled the appearance of string theory energy. It was like a string light show, with the different colors chasing and blending with one another. In instances the circular, oval shapes seemed to collapse, though never disappearing. The lights would zip back and forth up, down, sideways, but always staying in a string configuration, whether open ended, or closed. At the end of twelve minutes, the lights just seemed to fade as if retreating farther into space. What a sight!
