Posted: 8/19/2012
Location: Port Angeles, WA
Shape: Diamond
Duration:1 hour
Flashing diamond making short up,down, circular, left, right, movements in dark, clear Northeast night sky

We viewed flashing green, white, red lit object in the distance north/northeast of us – witnessed by 2 people - beginning about 11:30 PM 8/11/12.

At first we thought it was a plane moving eastward, but after about 10 minutes we realized it was almost stationary (we were watching the meteor shower in the Northeast sky).

As we studied the object instead of the stars, it did circles, went up and down and left to right and right to left several times until we quit watching about 12:30 AM 8/12/12. Sometimes it was even a bit jittery and movements were not evenly spaced. Some movements appeared to be fast and others slow.

It appeared to be about 25-30 degrees off of the horizon, slightly over a tree line.
