Unknown light hovering in sky toward TownvilleIn the early hours of January the 12th, a friend and myself walked to my car and started it in an effort to get some heat on a cold morning. As we sat and waited for my car to get warm, I noticed a peculiarly bright light in the Western sky. The light caught my attention initially because it was the brightest light in the sky, much brighter than any of the stars. But then as I sat and watched it, I noticed it was traveling incredibly akward to be a plane. First off, it was traveling left to right, then remaining stationary (hovering like a helicopter), then continuing to take off again, sort of zig-zagging. As it proceeded this routine, I ran back inside and grabbed my digital camera and batteries (nothing substantial seemed to come out, but they're open for review). I did notice, however, as i tried to focus on the object with the camera, i could clearly see a purple, cyan, blue alternating color pattern (this could just be coincidental, but even with the naked eye an alternating strobe could be seen).All in all, I'm not saying it was ever close enough for me to say it was an alien craft or UFO. I am, however, asking for an explination for the object I most certainly witnessed in the sky. Take into concideration that my father has worked with airplanes his entire life and being that we live less than a mile from the city airport (that has no military connection), I'm familiar with the common planes.Thank you for your time
