Location: Eufaula, AL
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Observed a stationary blinking light for 10 minutes in the constellation Orion on the night of Dec. 13, 2010.

Watching the meteor shower Monday night, my stepson and I noticed a blinking light in the upper region of Orion. It blinked every 10 seconds with an intensity near that of or slightly brighter than the adjacent stars. The light remained stationary for 10 minutes before it ceased entirely. It appearred to be at high altitude. It was cold and late so there was little ambient noise. No sound was detected but not surprising given the distance it appeared to us to be at.
