Location: Bridgeville, DE
Shape: Light
Duration:45 Minutes
A rapidly changing light in the sky.

I was traveling toward the West from Mid-Sussex County to Western Sussex when I noticed a light to the Southwest. At first I thought it was a planet but then I noticed that it appeared to be twinkling. It was a very clear night without any noticeable clouds in the sky and there was no moon.

I kept watching it till I arrived at my destination. Once there, I got out of the car and watched it for about 30 minutes longer.

The light was moving slowly toward the western horizon. It was bigger than a star. It was flashing at a very fast rate and very randomly. The color was changing about 3 to 4 times a second but with no discernable pattern. There where not any solid colors and the colors seemed very random. After a while it started moving from side to side. This wasn't a huge movement. About a half a finger width held at arms length. It was still in the sky above a distant tree line when I stopped watching it.
