I was on my way home, viewing the moon and noticing that the star that has been next to it the past few weeks is no longer next to it, and also that it was a Harvest moon. A moving, blinking light caught my eye. I thought it might be an airplane, but I followed it anyway. it was accending at a strange angle, and I continued to watch for another minute and it went higher into the sky. as it got higher the blinking lights no longer looked like airplane lights and instead started to blink in a nonsequential way, faster and faster. when it was highest in the sky, about 3 miles to the side of Orion, it stopped blinking and disappeared. I kept looking for about five minutes, even when I got home. The only other thing I saw was an actual airplane fly by the house, but it wasn't anywhere near where I saw the UFO. and it wasn't in any flight paths at that time. I grew up next to ILM, and the house I live at now has moderate plane traffic, some helicopters, and I have seen numerous airplanes day and night, this was not one of them. I have experienced many strange things throughout my life and spotted many things in the sky but was nervous about saying anything. This is my first report because I was waiting to see it again.
