Location: Mount Vernon, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:2 hours +
A light continued to blink in regular 8 -10 second intervals but doesn't seem to really be move across the sky for 2 hours now..

It has slightly moved east in relation to the stars, but to me it is pretty much still in the same spot. In other words, the stars are just simply that much further west due to the rotation of the earth. Due to it being Christmas I unfortunately had to come inside. At one point around 00:30 or so I saw what seemed to be another flashing light heading towards it from the E/NE. It was brighter and actually resembled an aircraft due to the speed it was traveling and it was headed right towards this stationary blinking light. Oddly, as soon as the aircraft looking light flashed one last time before intersecting the stationary flashing light from my viewpoint, the moving flashing light suddenly disappeared. Yes, the moving flashing light completely vanished right at the point of the stationary flashing light... I suspect it'll just stay there and keep blinking every 8 to 10 seconds all night all things considered, so strange... ...I really wish I could contact someone that could look up and also see it, that may have equipment to further investigate. It was East/ NE of Sirius... i first noticed it right near Canis Minor and as time passed and the stars moved westward it moved past M67 and so on over the 2 hour span…
