|Saw an object in ithe Western sky flashing red and green lights with a bright white light as well which moved in irratic directions
Was at a private dark location in Gainesville, VA looking to the West when we identified a strange object in the night sky. The object was bright and was flashing red and green lights along with an almost L.E.D. white light. These lights were clearly visible to all three of us using just our eyes and later confirmed with binoculars and telescope. The object almost appeared to be rotating at high speeds which could explain to alternation of lights which had no apparent pattern. This object was relatively fixed in the same portion of the night sky compared to other celestial objects. The object would move in irrative movements, suddenly going to the left and right really fast and then in circular movements. Then, it stopped moving and the green and red lights settled down. I flashed a bright HID light at it in sequences of 3. It was like the object was reacting to my flashes by beginning to move again and flashing back once again. I couldn't believe what I was! seeing and neither could my astronomy buddies, we were all stunned.
