Bright flashing object, multicolored flames.

Last night, on November 27, 2017, I noticed a bright flashing object in the sky. It appeared to be a star that was pulsating rapidly. I was standing outside of my garage working on my motorcycle. This was around 1030 in the evening.

So, I went in the house and grabbed my father, ((father's name deleted)). I said you have to come out and see this. We both walked out and said that’s really odd. It looks like a star, but I’ve never seen a star flash so early Brightly.

So I used my Star Walk app on my iPhone to see if I can figure out what it was. It didn’t show anything in particular. At least it didn’t show in that area of the sky. It was located south east at about 120°.

So I went in and grabbed my telescope in my Canon T3 I. I hooked up my camera to my telescope pinpointed it and took rapid succession of photos. When I zoomed in on it and used the LCD screen of my camera, you could see the flashing of colored lights. They were like flames all around it. They were streaking out from around it.

I tried to take video through my camera, but for some reason, when I went to take the photos and video of the card, the video was not there. It could’ve possibly been operator error, but I am a videographer,
