|3 Flickering objects that appeared to be stars, flickering orange/blue, dimmer/brighter, moving erratically
Friday, November 4th, I took my dad hunting for his first time. We sat that evening in the stand to see if we could see something action before opening day.
Saturday, November 5th, 5:00AM. We get to the stand, set up and got comfortable making small talk while we wait for the sun to start rising around 7AM(Blue hour). Around 5:15AM, my dad says "Hey, look at that star, its moving around oddly." I try to find it in the sky and just over the horizon above the tree line I see it. We start talking about the different things it could be but couldnt really comprehend what we were seeing. It appears to be a star light moving around erratically. It was obvious that it was at a great distance from us. I continued to watch in amazement as it was zig-zagging back and forth, left to right at different altitudes, periodically going up and down. Every few minutes it would pause and do the same routine. I started looking around and noticed 2 more of the same objects at the same height, almost in a triangle pattern (To put that in perspective, the 1st one was directly in front of us, the 2nd one was directly behind us, and the 3rd one was directly to our right). They were all located at the furthest point of the horizon you could see, just over the tree line, all doing the same thing. At one point as we were watching the one in front of us, a random light blue light appeared next to it, maybe 4" in the sky away from it(Actual distance unknown as they were very far away.) After a few minutes, it just gradually vanished within about 3 seconds. Shortly after that light blue light vanished, a weird beam of light flashed to the right of the 1st light. The beam of light didnt shoot across the sky or anything, you could see point A and point B of the beam. (This was the only time we witnessed the light blue light appear and disappear as well as when the beam of light that flashed. This lasted about 2.5 hours, at some point while we werent paying attention, the one behind us disappeared and the one to our right disappeared. We continued to watch the one in front of us, it stopped moving erratically around 6:30-6:45 and it slowly moved up into the sky and became smaller and smaller as the sun was rising. Eventually, it vanished around 7:30AM and was visible even after all the other stars werent.
I took a video with my cell phone and rested my hands and phone on the window sill of the deer stand to stabilize it. I was unable to get a clear shot as the more I zoomed in, the more the light became a blob but, it was noticeably moving erratically in the video.
Note: The selection in characteristics below this, dont really fit in with this. As, we're unsure if the light blue light or beam came directly from the 1st light or not. They just happened.
