Pulsating object observed over Michigan.

I was in my back yard in the city of Dearborn Heights, Michigan, and observed a pulsating object in the sky.

I quickly started filming the object with my 4k video camera on a tripod. The object appeared stationary, yet changed shape and color.

I managed to capture video and still images which were captured from the video itself.

Other people also reported seeing this object on social media.

I am a retired police pilot with a commercial rating. I have never seen an aircraft with these characteristics.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with the witness via telephone, and viewed the video he forwarded to NUFORC. We suspect that what he was observing was a "twinkling" star, and given that he was looking to the west, the most likely candidate, we believe, is the star called, "Arcturus." PD))
