Red and white pulsating lights hovering over Sykesville, MD

I went to let my dog out when something in the western sky caught my attention. I am an avid star gazer and to my astonishment there was an inordinately bright set of flashing lights in an area of the night sky where no star or planet should be.

This in itself may not seem that strange as aircraft fly over this area very frequently, however this did not act like any aircraft I have ever seen. For starters the object was silent and remained in the same place while a series of multi-colored lights flashed it what appeared to be a pattern. The lights themselves would flash off and on in a series of revolutions around a singular red beam, the white lights would flash in a circular motion around the constant red light.

The object just remained in place until about 1:20am, it was at that time another object, most likely a plane judging by its sound and speed had moved relatively close to the object in question.

It was here when things got even crazier. The object projected a huge orb of light around it and it flashed as bright as the sun and vanished. The other object flying towards it made a quick turn to the south and continued flying a normal course as if it were heading towards Dullus International.

I will continue to search that area of sky again tonight to see if the object returns, but the shear speed at which the object darted off last night made it clear to me this object was not something one normally sees when gazing up in the night sky.

The only other thing I would like to add was that it was a perfectly clear night and thinking my eyes were playing tricks on me I went and got my glasses and an HD set of binoculars and can easily draw and explain what exactly it was that I saw in the western sky outside of Sykesville, MD, last night.

Thank you for your time in this matter and I look forward to further correspondence.
