Location: Pleasant Hill, OH
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Very fast and erratic light seen in the sky around Troy, OH.

My friend and I were finishing up a night of shooting the breeze and satellite watching. He looked up and said, "What kind of airplane is that?" I looked and saw a flashing light about 60 degrees up and 15 degrees right of north.

The light was a little brighter than the stars in the big dipper and pure white. It would blink twice within a second and be dark for about 3 seconds. It was moving in a very quick and erratic way with no discernable pattern. It seemed to be about the altitude of a commercial jet.

It stayed in that general area of the sky for about 2 minutes then moved behind the neighbor’s roof. It came back into view on the other side of their roof 10 seconds later. Where it blinked 3 more times and disappeared.

Within 2 minutes more we saw it blink 3 more times and disappear, but now it was about due south. Another minute later we saw it blink 2 more times back at its original NNW position. We stayed out for another 45 minutes waiting for it to reappear, to no avail.

I have worked for a commercial airline for 11 years; the other witness is an MBA with a large technology company. We are both 31 years of age. No drugs or alcohol were involved in this observation and neither of us had ever seen anything like it.
