P: I lost it when i had to manuever
CT: OK.. how fast is it going?

in our far right.

P: It's fading... i cant see it anymore
CT2: We saw a light, chaging from green to red, it was going through the clouds... do you see any clouds.. in your sector?
P: Negative, that's what we saw, but there where no clouds ( CAVOK: Ceiling and Visibility are OK)
CT2: Ok, so you saw a light, changing from red to green...
P: Affirmative! Then it changed to a very bright light, much like a landing light, around two miles from the aircraft
CT2: Affirmative, we saw it with our binoculars...
P: I think that's the one, it was in our flight path, we had to manuever to avoid collision, then we lost it. It reappeared in our right side ... then
it faded away.
