Home east of the airport checking locks and windows at 2am spotted a bright flashing light to my east 20 degrees down from my zenith not helo not jet not sm plane not weather balloon. it blinked. few seconds later blink again several degrees from the starting point. then blink again several degree else where. then it blink near or at its original position again. the pattern repeated twice and then stopped. the space between the blinks was about a hands width. total experience less than a minute. flightradar24 shows nothing for miles around... i grew up in this area, and many of the old timers have seen strange things in the sky while sitting on their porches or in their back yards. not sure why rochester is such a hot zone for them. so i guess i feel puzzled about it. it was not a long experience, hardly worth mentioning it, but i figure every small report when added up together may shed light on what these things are. sadly, it happened so abruptly there was no time to get a pix or vid of it. i might be the only person on my street or in rochester to see this event. weather is clear, 36, but feels like 29, visibility 10+m pressure 1027 mb wind 9mph moving north east.
