Craft seen emitting various light patterns over Tianjin, China, May 2nd, 2012

May 2nd, 2012, at about 10 pm Beijing time, my youngest son came out of his bedroom and asked about a "weird light in the sky that was changing colors". Without getting up, I dismissed him back to bed by telling him it was likely a planet. I wish I had listened to him sooner. A few minutes later I retrieved a pair of binoculars, then my 40x Sony Handycam camcorder. As you can see from my Youtube posts, the lights go through a long pattern of transition rotating through about seven different lighting sequences. The object moved very slowly to the Northwest, toward Beijing. Our home is about 100 kilometers from Beijing. I have no idea what this flying object was. Two airliners flew over which we could hear and see their outline. This object had no sound and no silhouette. With the naked eye, the bottom light looked like it was quickly changing colors from red, to green to blue, back to red, but the video doesn’t really pick up on this. I am guessing ! it was 3,000-5,000 feet up in the air. Both my sons, ages 12 and 18, along with my wife observed this craft.
