|big amber oval seen traveling north over Peugot Sound just after midnight?
we went out to watch the fire works and then.. WOW! at approx. 12:01am an amber ball traveled north directly above the Peugeot Sound. there were fire works in the vicinity and other (normal)air traffic as well. the light at first looked like a helicopter but it was moving away from the city center during the show (Strange?) it was an odd vibrating amber glow not like any other aircraft. it moved north slowly at about 7 or 8,000 feet and pulsed at alternating intervals . and after about 3 mins it disappeared.. just pulsed out, didn't go behind anything and had visible in a clear patch of sky. moments after it left a (obvious) helicopter flew from the north to the same spot and circled and then flew back north.
