Location: Aptos, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
Flashing star, moves in small increments all directions varying speeds. Ascends 45 degree angle in 1 hr. Stops flashing static.

Flashing star like object scene from upstairs bedroom window. In the sky. Moved in sporadic up down, side to side and diagonal directions. Speed would vary. I spotted it rising in sky over eucalyptus trees near Cabrillo College. I suspect it was in the Watsonville area, but don't know. The flashing star continued to rise in a 45 degree angle ( to the right ) for an hour. Stopping at times, but always with tiny ricochet movements that seemed random. At times fast and at times slow. Around 5:00 AM it completely stopped moving and flashing and stayed put. There were two tiny stars on each side that appeared dim. Husband woke up and saw the static bright star with two tiny dim stars. By that time there was no ricochet movement. I fell asleep.
