A very strange light observant at midnight.I am a mid-western mom. I think I saw a weird star formation; something explainable. It was a little after midnight, a very clear and starry night. I was watching the night sky and at northeast there appeared a light, as on an airplane, but the plane seemed like it was to high to be that bright. I then noticed red and bluish lights radiating out from this center bright light (kind of like a Ferris wheel) but not that consistent or organized of a pattern. It appeared to have a key shape. Occasionally there were other clear lights (not yellow or white; clear). At one time, I thought there was a beam but I think my eyes blurred.When I first noticed, it was stationary. It did, however, move very slowly southwest. This went on for approximately 10 minutes. Upon it moving, I noticed there were three linear lights (clear lights) that moved equally with this object-thingy. I figured this had a logical explanation, got a little creepy, and went inside.
