4th of July. Visitors enjoy a fireworks show, while I watched them.

I was watching neighbors shoot off fireworks. Their backs were to the craft. There were 5 lights in the shape of the 5 side of a die. The object was in the northwest sky.

I first thought it was a Japanese lantern, since it was the 4th of July. However, as I continued to gaze, the object didn't follow the typical Japanese lantern pattern.

An interesting few things happened, as I intently watched the object. The object seemed to be watching the fireworks the neighbors were shooting off. Then in a split second, the object dropped down vertically and straight back up to its location. The brightness level stayed the same, the whole time.

I went inside to grab my telescope to see it closer, when I returned, it was gone.
