|Unusual stationary, elongated and bright light directly across Henderson Bay
Looking directly west over Henderson Bay from our second story living room window at about 10:00 tonight, my husband and I saw a light above the hills across the water that was different from starlight in shape, size and intensity. It was a long distance away and difficult to make out, but looked elongated, almost like two lights, one atop of the other. Unfortunately, couldn't find our adult binoculars and resorted to an old pair of toy binoculars... when I looked through these from our driveway outside I noticed a similar light slightly above, distant from, and to the left of the big light straight ahead. Through the toy binocs, the light periodically looked triangular in shape with a red center and white border (though this may have been a manifestation of the poor lenses). My husband looked through and described the same color. Both lights remained stationary for about half an hour until apparent cloud cover.
