Shape: Other
Duration:5 minutes
Bright gold light appears stationary over Great Falls, suddenly moves away; large platform with red lights.

I saw a bright gold light in line with the lower handle of the big dipper. The light was station keeping for about one minute. The light increased as it sped east about one mile. Once again stationary. The light luminosity decreased and the light sped west until out of sight. a platform with two bright red lights appeared at the same location. Too far away to make out any details.

So as the initial gold light sped west, the platform slowly moved eastward until out of sight. The speed of the platform was much slower than the initial gold light.

Odd that the red lights illuminated and turned off in sync. Not like a rotating beacon and the red lights were quite bright.
