Occurred : 2/3/2009 19:30 (Entered as : 02/03/09 19:30)
Reported: 2/3/2009 6:39:33 PM 18:39
Posted: 3/19/2009
Location: South New Belrin, NY
Shape: Light
Duration:1 1/2 hours
Bright light with flashing red and blue lights underneath. Moved in a circular motion. Red flash across sky directly underneath.

My husband went outside with the dogs around 20:45 on the date mentioned. He called me to come outside to look at something. When I came out, he pointed to the sky and stated this figure, that resemled a very bright star, was making a circular pattern in the sky.

I ran back in the house to find my camera to try to get a better look with a zoom lens. I looked at it closer and noticed red and blue flashing lights at the base of the figure. While I was watching, it made no sudden movements but directly underneath it, I saw a fast moving red light flash across the sky and disappear.

My daughter had asked what we were looking at so we showed her. She said that when she arrived home about and hour and a half prior, she saw the light and she and her Aunt had dismissed it as a planet or star. After she said this, we all went back inside, so she wouldn't be frightened.

Around 21:15 my husband looked outside again and the figure had disappeared from the sky.

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of Sirius?? PD))
