Location: Cedar Rapids, IA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 minutes
An object in the sky moved gradually, hovering at times, flashing red, blue and white lights for 30 + minutes, 2 nights in a row.

I was sitting outside, when I noticed flashing/blinking lights in the sky. I watched it for awhile since it was moving upwards very slowly. The lights were red, blue, and white and blinked back and forth in a pattern. It continued to move slowly, when in a split second, it veered east, then slowed back down again. Even from the distance, and with it being slightly cloudy, I could see a definite shape.. Almost like a jet (nose facing straight up towards space), with the lower half angling out. For about 20 minutes it hung in the same spot, constantly flashing. Then just like that it was gone.
