A wobbling, slightly moving object with 1-3 visible flashing red lights.

Last night I saw an unusual "thing" in the sky. It was directly south at the 12:00 position. It caught my eye because it was moving, but not far. It was more like a wobble, changing short positions in the blink of an eye. I got the binoculars out and saw there were several red lights flashing in different positions on the "thing". My husband insisted it was the Planet Mars. I've never seen Mars with flashing red lights.

I checked on it again around midnight and it was gone. I posted the info on social media and others claimed to see it, too. I'm skeptical of their claims. Thank you~

((NUFORC Note: We suspect a sighting of Mars. PD))
