Non-moving object or light, flashing red, blue, green over a mountain range by Schofield

I was lying in bed reading, my husband was sleeping, when I had the strange feeling that I should get up and look out of our bedroom window. It was like a thought that came – get up, because there’s something out there. I got up and walked to the window, moved the curtain and turned the blinds, and saw way off in the distance (between a palm tree and a regular tree across the street, in a north-westerly direction) a bright light the size of a large star, but flashing red, green, blue. I watched it for about 5 minutes and it never moved. I watched closely to see if it was just a star twinkling (all the stars twinkle here in Hawaii, every night), but I dismissed that because of the colors repeatedly flashing.

I urged my husband to wake up and come look, to confirm that he saw it too. He reluctantly got up and came to the window, but was too sleepy and tired to focus on anything, and he went back to bed. I stayed at the window another 15-20 minutes to monitor this thing flashing colored lights, and it never once moved. I kept thinking, ‘This has got to be a star, or a pole/antenna on top of the mountain range – it’s not moving an inch.’ Shortly after midnight, black clouds covered the entire area and I could no longer see the flashing colored lights or any other stars.

I pinpointed the exact spot I saw this light by using the trees as landmarks – the light was just above the bottom-most branch of the palm tree, on the right side of the regular tree and the left side of the palm tree. I tried taking a picture or video of the flashing lights, but it was so far away that it didn’t register on my camera or video camera. When I woke up this morning, I went straight to the window to see if the light could have been a pole/antenna on top of the mountain range next to Schofield – and based on the position of the light relative to the palm tree – there’s no way. The light was clearly in the sky, not supported in any way by the mountain range – the mountains were far below the spot where I saw the light flashing various colors.
