|Noticed a hovering light in the sky for 50 minutes and was slowly moving to the south.
I noticed a dot of light in the east from my front room window that I observed for about 50 minutes. It was odd in that the light was there for such a long time. I could not determine the distance the dot of light was from me, but when I first noticed it is was about 30 deg. above the horizon and 20 degrees south of east. Over the 50 minutes I watched it it slowly moved to the south until it was about 50 degrees south of east. I tried to get a short movie of it, but as I looked at what I captured today, I don't see any image from my camera. Other info is: I believe it was a long ways off, maybe a mile.
It twinkled. It looked like white, then green, then blueish light and repeating those colors.
I first noticed this at 9:30 PM and watched it until 10:20 PM when I went to bed.
There was a small aircraft that was going approx. due south that was east of me by a half mile and they might have seen what I saw if they looked to their left. That aircraft flew by around 9:50, but I did not note the exact time. The airport near here may know about that small plane.
If I were to guess what it was I would say it was a helicopter hoovering high in the sky.
