|blinking object red, green, white.
At about 21:30 PM I noticed a flickering star, then went in to watch the rest of a movie. At about 22:00 I stepped outside and noticed it was still there yet more clearer and blinking red, green and white. I fished for my binoculars and couldn’t make out what it was. I got my wife out to look, she noticed a second one. I then went in for my 4 in telescope. Still couldn’t make it out so I set up my 12in telescope. The object did not move while I set either of them up. At about 0:00 midnight it began to drop into the horizon. By 0:30 it was gone.
No matter what magnification I put on my telescopes the objects remained the same blinking red, white, green. prior to midnight the objects stayed in the same spot for about 2 hours.
The second object is still there however, I am retiring for the night.
((NUFORC Note: Possible "twinkling" star, maybe Sirius. PD))
