Shape: Light
Duration:30+ minutes
multicolored flashing light on cloudy night.

I walked outside to lock my car and looked up and saw the light in the sky, I didn't think anything of it until I realized it was very cloudy. I sat outside in my car for a little while just watching it for about 15 minutes. My husband came outside wondering what I was doing and he was amazed he had never seen anything like that either. A few minutes later I got a phone call from my niece who lives about ten minutes away asking me if I saw a strange light outside towards the south over the mountain, she was doing some homework for her astronomy class in college. We were seeing the same thing, she got off the phone to call her professor to see if he was seeing the same thing and I did not hear back from her. But she said it was roughly 30 degrees to the southwest of Jupiter and roughly 50 degrees south south west away from Sirus whatever that means. I took a video of the strange light in the sky. It was changing colors, pale blue, white, orange, green a! nd red and it was flashing in and out. There was no sound.
