|Multi-colored Lights, NE sky, 60x Telescope
Using a scope at 60x, two of us observed an object with red, blue, green, and white lights running very quickly in a circular pattern. The colors were very distinctly individual rather than blurred together. It was stationary except for one extremely fast maneuver eastward for what appeared to be about 500 yards. It probably moved much farther than that if you account for how far away it was. We couldn't even distinguish if it was in our atmosphere. Without the scope, it appeared to be as bright and visible as the most visible stars and of similar size. Due to the bright, flashing lights we couldn't distinguish any other details.
We watched it for about 15 minutes and checked the internet for any NASA reports concerning anything they might have up but there were none. We also attempted to take photographs but the camera phone didn't have the capability for decent night photos/videos.
