I was adjusting a wreath on my front door & saw a very bright light in the southern sky over my neighbors house. this light stayed stationary for awhile so i called my husband & got our binoculars & camera. the object appeared to be cigar shaped and stayed in a stationary position from 6:59 pm to 7:14 pm. the object was hovering at 25-30 degrees above the ground in the southern sky. the object disappeared for about 5 minutes then reappeared to the right(s.W.) of where we first saw it and started moving to the east blinking red & white alternately. there was no sound at all. my husband was a naval helicopter aviator from 1971-1975. my husband said that commercial or military aircraft do not behave like this. i have 3 photos of this sighting.
