|Triangle seen in telescope
Out on the back porch.Looking towards the west,towards the Rockies,Saw your typical looking airplane in the sky,flashing colors,looked like it was moving toward the East.But then it seemed different somehow...thought maybe it was a bright star so I run upstairs and get my telescope just to see what it is exactly...I'm bored so why not?Besides Jupiter looked like a cool thing to check out anyways.So I retrieve my telescope and look at this object and it is not an airplane at all or a star or planet.Its a triangle,upright,the bottom angle is bright bright blue and the top is flashing red but it was like the colors were rotating around it.Its just sitting there in the sky and then poof,gone!Wow!Thought I'd report this since it was odd.
((NUFORC Note: Possible "twinkling" star, we suspect. PD))
