Duration:10-15 mins
Bright light spotted in sky

I was awaken just after 6AM, and looked out the sliding glass doors, presumably facing east. A bright light in the sky caught my eye, which at first looked like a regular star, but it was awfully bright and it would flash every 10-15 seconds. It was already starting to turn daylight at the time of this sighting, plus I can't recall seeing any clouds (it was mostly clear all night long with distant visibility) that might've hindered this light. I shall add that there were trees outside, but quickly concluded that the trees were not causing the flashing, as I witnessed this light flashing without the branches blocking the view.

To clarify location of sighting, it is located about 7 miles north of Johnstown and about a mile south of U.S. Route 22. There is also a small airport about 10 miles southeast, but I doubt it was a plane, the light was stationary too long.
