Shape: Star-like | Duration: Undisclosed
Source:

Ever since my sighting on 8/20/12 I have been observing the night sky. My first night sky watching I noted a star-like object just before the sun went down, It was the first star out and much lower than a typical star. After watching it really close I noticed it would move up and down and side to side. It would even do circles at times. Day 2 i had my binoculars and when viewed I discovered the object had red/blue and white blinking lights. Day 3 I noticed many more of the same object but spread miles apart. One directly above my head. I have never seen these star-like objects in the sky before. I only noticed them after my very close visual on 8/20/12. Which Tues the 21 of Aug two more people have told me they saw the same thing I saw. 1:hovering over the municipal airport at 1pm. The second eye witness over a school at 7:30pm. I would like to know what those strobes are in the sky. Do they lay out a path for airplane traffic? multiple
