Location: Anchorage, AK
Shape: Flash
Duration:30 seconds
Three stationary light pulses over the Chugach range.

I opened my back door to let my dog out last night at exactly 11:30 pm. Upon opening the door, I immediately noticed (my dog also noticed) a very bright white/ light blue pulse of light. The location of this light was West of Anchorage, above the Chugach Mountains. The pulse was slow, and I observed no movement (up/ down/side-to-side).

Immediately following the pulse, a streak of light passed directly under the location of the light pulse, appearing to be a shooting star (quick movement North to South, and left a visible trail behind).

Immediately following this, two more light pulses of the same color/shape/ brightness flashed. Each happened at a slightly lower altitude (beneath the "shooting star") than the initial light pulse, but were identical in duration, brightness, and color.

After the third pulse, no subsequent sightings were made. No flashing lights/forward movement/ or noise were observed.

It did not appear to be a commercial/ military aircraft and had no observable beacons.

The brightness and color were quite notable, even causing my dog to pause and take note.
