Location: Chirpan (Bulgaria),
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
pulsating red/yellow light moving slowly and stopping above a city(possibility of a repeating case)

A pulsating light(pulsing from yellowish light to reddish light) moved accrossed the night sky and ended it's movement over the city Asenovgrad Bulgaria.Object observed from village Zetyovo near Chirpan.10min prior to the event the light was stationary as if a star in the north west part of the night sky.I(the observer) noticed that the same star(pulsating) is not at the same place when I got out of the house.Quick look to my left I found it.I thought it just moved like all stars do.But I stopped and observed the star(light) since I had a feeling it is moving faster then any star and slower than any plane.After observing few objects near to determine is the star(light) moving(due to the night conditions).In the observation I a slight movement to the south west part of the sky.I rushed to call my wife to observe it as well.By the time I fetched her and showed her the object.It has stopped over the city Asenovgrad.She said it's a plane...but it was too close t! o the city....not moving and on top of that a plane....moving in it's regular direction on the night sky...came as a reference that the light was not another plane.I had noticed that star(light) many times in that same place and that later in the night(for example an hour or two later) is gone.I thought it was just away from view due to the movement of the earth.Also noticing later an light above the city.But since on his background there are mountains I concluded that that light is something in the mountains(thought at times it looked like the mountains are not that tall,but since it's in the night it's hard to tell)

((NUFORC Note: This sighting occurred at 19:15 hrs. (local time) on Tuesday, October 30, 2012. However, in order for us to be able to post it before 19:15 hrs. (Pacific), we have had to amend the time, temporarily, to reflect an earlier time. Our database will not allow us to post reports that are in the future. We will change the time back to what the witness has indicated above, after 19:15 hrs. (Pacific).

For some reason, the witness has indicated that the date is approximate. Perhaps a result of English not being a native language for the witness. PD))
