Shape: Unknown
Duration:1 minutes
Inconsistent flashing and swerving object overhead

Traveled west to East apx 80 degrees high. First noticed 2-3 bright flashes within 3 sec. continued to travel East with bright flashes occurring every 5-10 sec.

object would swerve left and right as it traveled East. After a minute, it disappeared.

At first we thought it was a meteorite entering atmosphere due to brightness but when it began to swerve, we knew it was not a meteorite.

It appeared too high to be a helicopter and the flashes were too inconsistent and too bright to be aircraft strobes. This was witnessed by 2 career pilots and their spouses.
