I went onto the patio to have a cigarette and looked into the sky. i immediately noticed a large red orb hovering and pulsating a white light. the white light was as if flashing in a pattern, yet would also randomly start flashing very fast, then returning to a pattern and repeat the cycle. what has my attention is that i saw this exact object doing this exact thing in the exact colors and location just the other morning a few hours before the 5.8 mag earthquake up north! just like before, i watched it for about two minutes before it faded out and disappeared. i tried getting video and pictures the other day, but couldn't get my phone to focus on it. i felt safe the whole time as if it were friends here to protect and maybe warn me of something still unknown. however, i can definitely draw pictures of it.
