|Orange pulsating light(s) seen for 5 minutes.
I was outside smoking at 2215 on September 3, 2011, and had walked to my car to grab my drink. As I was walking back to my house, I glanced over towards my neighbor’s house. I noticed a bright orange light about 25 degrees off the deck and at a distance of maybe 2 miles (hard to judge due to breaks in trees, highway, and open farm land). It was southwest towards Sandusky/Norwalk. I stood there watching it for a moment and it dimmed out to almost nothing then appeared bright again.
I ran inside to grab my telescope. When I returned outside, I saw the light in the same place. I set my telescope up and upon looking through the spotter to make sure I was lined up right, I noticed that when the light dimmed, it appeared to break into 4 smaller lights (possible illusion due to spotter?) I tried finding the light through my telescope but could not seem to locate it.
I watched it for a few more moments then decided to run inside and get my wife and brother-in-law. When we returned outside, the object had vanished. As far as I am aware, I am the only one who saw it. I am a Marine who spent 5 years on an airbase. No aircraft that I know of has lights like this.
