|Solid green light spotted dancing in the sky.
While letting my dog outside, I noticed a green light hovering in the sky to the southwest. I watched it for a minute, wondering if maybe it was a plane. But it just stayed in the same spot, so it couldn't have been a plane. Plus the light was solid and not blinking.
After a minute I realized I left my phone in the house. So, I ran inside and grabbed it and started to record footage. Keep in mind, it's night outside and I'm using a phone for video. It was hard to keep it steady due to the zoom level that I used on top of it being on the completely black background of the sky.
It was making strange sideways and up and down motions, which is hard to tell on the video due to a lack of reference. I watched it for another 2 minutes then went inside to grab a witness. By the time we got back outside it was gone. I also realize for some reason the phone did not capture the green of it that I saw. The green that I saw was as green as a green traffic light. I would estimate its height at around 6000 feet and around 5-6 miles from me. The blinking in the video was when it would go behind a power line.
