|Strange light anomoly in the southern sky over Endicott, NY.
Looking almost directly south I observed what I thought to be two stars lined up with each other, but noticed flashing lights.
I live on the approach way to the Binghamton airport and thought it was perhaps a plane. However, this light anomaly didn't move; it remained stationary.
I managed to count at least 12 flashes of light in an oval like formation around the two lights that looked like stars. I observed this for a little over a half an hour and then around 12:15 am it just totally vanished.
We have a clear, starry sky so there were no clouds to block it from view. It was there and then it just (as I said) vanished.
I tried to photograph it with my digital camera but the pictures did not turn out. I did however draw a diagram of the star formation it was near to in order to give an idea of where this appeared in the sky. I have photo copied the outline drawing and am emailing it to the link below.
