Location: Sykesville, MD
Shape: Light
Duration: 1Hr 15Min (still there)
Characteristics: The object emitted beams, The object changed color
white light in sky that showed some red color changes intermittently

I saw a light in the North-north-east direction that was about 10 to 20 thousand feet up. Initially I thought it could be a helicopter as it appeared to intermittently have a red flash. However, it didn't change position significantly for over an hour. It would at times seem to vary in position (minimally) up and down and from side to side.

I looked at it through binoculars and when I focused in it appeared to be bright white light and have occasional red and green colors. When I focused out it took on different shapes and showed the appearance of multiple lights that changed color. At 1:40 it appears to have increased in altitude.
