|JULY 24, 2017 At about 0300 hours, I went out front and let my dogs out, one at a time. I do this most nights, since I am unable to sleep at night. I sat on my front porch, smoked a cigarette and flash my green Laser as I have done a hundred times before. Tonight I received a response! No assumption, he was replying to my laser and flashing, then it flashed very brightly. It looked like a LED camera flash, or Powerful LED flash light.
It was north of me, stationary at first. It began moving from the left to the right and stop directly in front of my porch. I held of the V for Victory and the Brite Flash once off again. After one or two minutes, it began to move again. It continue with the softer flashes, intermittently. While moving to my right, south East for the aircraft. It paused for about 3 or minutes. Then continued on. It stop flashing but I could clearly see it until the craft it went out of site. I did 2 a 2nd one right after, I thought it was a airliner, since it was a light with a red aircraft warning light I commonly see at night.
I wanted to believe and do believe this was man made, hoping at least. Told myself it was. Unless it was a drone, it had to be about 8 thousand feet, if it was the size of a Black Hawk, or Huey Helicopters. It could have been higher or lower, just my best guess. I have jumped out of both and I have jumped at night.
This event lasted about 20 to 30 minutes.
