About a week ago, I was looking up at the sky, and I saw these lights. It was not a star or a satellite. I studied astronomy years ago, and never
heard of anything natural doing what this thing was doing. Also, this thing started in the atmosphere. It was probably only a few thousand feet up.
I got video of it consistantly, and evenly flashin green and red as if it were spinning and one side was each color, with a little bit of pale white
in it, as well. I got video of it, and zoomed in as close as I could. The colors came through clearly, but the shape was tough to figure. I
observed it for about 1.5hrs, as it slowly moved upward, and away from me. It was probably a town or 2 north of where I was (Rockford, IL).
Last night, I was scanning again. I saw it again. But this time it was in the south sky. It was further up, but directly over Rockford. It was
visable just NW of the half moon. The color was more difficult to see with the naked eye, but I got my video camera again, and binoculars. The
colors were definate. With the naked eye, it just looked like a star twinkling more than usual. This would prevent anyone not looking for anything
unusual in the sky from noticing. This thing moved to the left and right slightly, and up, then down slowly. I called my mom who lives less than a
mile away, but could see it from a different angle, and could see the movement well from where she was.
My girlfriend who also saw this with me, both times, googled red and green lights..., and came across this thread. Some of the video I got is just
like the links on here, but even a bit less blurry.
The only thing I can think of is some strange helicopter hovering for a VERY long time, and very high. If so, WHY? I don't believe it was one, but
that is the only earthly explaination I can think of.
