|I saw a bright yellow light in the western sky flash 8-9 times as it traveled south and then it disappeared
I have a lawn chair at the west edge of my property, the view from the chair is an open cow pasture of about 3-400 acres. I was walking the dogs around the permiter of my small 6 acre plot when I sat down and was looking at the night sky. I noticed a bright red star just above the horizon, the red star was located just south of due west, I guess it was SSW.
I then looked up and to my right now looking due west and higher on the horizon. I saw a bright yellow light in the western sky flash 8-9 times as it traveled from a northerly direction toward the south and then it disappeared.
The light traveled along its course blinking off and on with its trajectory being illuminated, however the flashes were not timed, in other words the space between the flashes were not the same, the final flash indicated the object had traveled about 1/2 again the length of the prior distance between the prior flash. I did not see an object just the flashing light.
I told my wife the lights reminded me of the light you see on an EKG only this light was yellow in color not blue. Then it was just gone, no sound nothing.
There were no cows in the field, or if there were they did not respond to the light, also my dogs did not respond to the light.
I did not have my phone on me, so I was not able to take a photo
