|Very bright orange light, strobes, fades, brightens, moves, disappears, reappears in Flathead Valley.
The past week I have been seeing what I believe to be the same craft. It is orange in color and kind of strobes, sometimes slowly sometimes quick. Each time I've seen it I see it just still in place, then I get my camera to take long exposure shots and I was suprised the first time I saw it because my shots showed it's movement. I photographed it until it completely dissapeared the first time. The second time I saw it I spotted it in a completely different area, probably about 70 degrees away from the first spotting, I wasn't able to photograph it this time because I had to drive. When I returned to the same spot about 20 minutes later it was gone. THEN, tonight I actually saw it appear. I was outside looking at Arcturus in the NorthEast or so and I was gazing around when all the sudden it appeared at 12'oclock ahead of me.
I immediatly ran inside and grabbed my camera. As soon as I got my camera set up it started to slowly move left. I was able to get two 30 second exposure shots of it before it went behind trees, It was very bright. I grabbed my tripod/camera and ran through the field infront of my house and it just kept moving but this time away from me. I ran across a highway and into these other fields where it pretty much shot away fast, and I then spotted it very far in the distance, I was able to get a few more shots but it was too far away and I called it quits. Plus it was cold and Iwas only wearing pajama pants. This thing is sure to appear again. Hopefully I will get it again tomorrow night. I thought I was able to see a shape to it but I'm not sure...I can only say for sure that it was very bright orange.
