Duration:~3 minutes
red, white and blue flashing oval shaped light moving west to south east in the the southern Oregon sky.

This event accrued last night 8/19/2015, at approximately 2100. I was sitting in my hammock facing south. I happened to look at the sky toward the west when I noticed a white looking light moving west to southeast. I first thought it was just a satellite, but then I noticed it was slowing down and speeding up. It also began to flash red, blue, and white lights. It appeared to be around the size comparable to what a star would look like with the naked eye maybe a little bigger.

It continued to move across the sky from west to southeast and then it stopped in the southeastern sky. When it stopped the flashing of the blue, red and white lights began to be more prominent. While it was stopped I grabbed my phone and began taking a video. The light stayed in the same spot for around 2 minutes. It then began to slowly move out of sight in the southeastern sky.

As I watched the video over and over again last night pausing and looking and some of the still frames, it appeared to have a ban of light with darker spots above and below the lights.
