Ok I can see the red-blue-white blinking star/object lately when we get clear sky.
As far as I can tell it doesn't move.
Anyway, what the heck is it? It's as bright as Sirius if not a bit more.

You see many things in the sky at night, like helicopters flashing white lights.

I too have been seeing these flashing lights in the sky. Just as described on the many occasions i have seen a light flash in the sky.

I have seen what skeptics would call a reflection from a satelite on over 100 occasions, once over ten incidents happened in one night. (sometimes upto 3 at one time)

I have seen objects fly past at great speeds which definately give off smoke at certain points (almost in the same way fireworks do)

The technology is not impossible, its possible to create friction using electro magnetics which can be fueled by hydrogen. This would create no sound and could create a greater force than earth's gravity allowing a UFO to hover.

I don't think any of you are in any real danger, however i am going to have a look into if what you are seeing is common with many offline ppl as well as you guys online here at ATS.

Last night the big 'blinking star' was there as well as two smaller ones, am I the only person seeing more than one? I see at least two or three a night (given a clear-ish sky)?

I think ATS forum users are confusing what has been seen here

A fixed blinkering star/planet is not what I'm talking about, AND by the sounds of it not what the OP and several other posters are talking about. There are many stars out there that twinkle (and in many different colours)

what the OP is talking about is a flash, as if you were able to fly like superman and hover in a fixed posistion without anyone knowing you are there, and then taking a photo using your flash... the flashes differ in intensity

some flashes would be like the light from 500 disposable camera flashes going off at once.. some are more like just a single disposable camera going off....

the object that is flashing that i have only seen as a result of it flashing, does not flash in just one posistion. It can flash once in one place and then in another place 30 seconds later.

a seond UFO I have seen upwards of 100 times most sceptics would explain as satelittes... I have seen upto 3 of these at once, meaning that they are three seperate objects. I have seen 2 head from north to south and 1 head south to north. I have also seen one flashe on and off while flying over which I am certain is the same as the others... these objects are not that high in the sky, may'be about 5000feet above sea level...

when you look these objects online people will tell you that they are reflections from satelittes, however to see over 100 in three months, when you've never seen one before is a bit strange... they seem to be slightly larger than a basket ball, which means they can't be manned, in fact must be being flown by remote.

I have also seen objects fly past my house at very high speeds at low heights, again a bit larger than a basket ball, in these cases they have given off smoke. They look a bit like fireworks, however are definatly not fireworks.

All objects are silent... I have also never been able to see these items except when they are lit up... I have only ever seen the ufo's mentioned above when it has been dark.

Like I said before in order for the objects I've seen to fly, they would have to be able to create gravity to hover as I have seen them. The only way you can do that is by creating friction, which can be created using electro magnetics...

if they were ufo's then in the case of the ones that look like reflections from satelittes then they are trying to look like reflections from UFO's. The fact is you can't see them when they turn their lights off. So what purpose would a being have creating an object that people would mistake for a satelite reflection?

Yes! Spot on, that is a great summary of what i tried to describe several times. Its not a scintillating star... but something which moves around. But you typically cannot see them.

I'm pretty sure this phenomenon isn't satellites bearing the sun's reflection, as for the lack of a "flaring" effect. For instance, when the sun catches a solar panel on a satellite in orbit it looks something like this:


Notice how the satellite slowly dims in and out again, over a period of 20 seconds or so. A reflection like this from above can sometimes be a lot quicker but still noticeable that it is a satellite reflecting the sun (the intensity of it and that it takes a while).

The thing i have been seeing and yourself, is like an instant flash. Typically there is no dimming at all (as in the video above), but rather an instantaneous point of light lasting no longer than half a second and then simply disappearing for X amount of time (has been anywhere from 5 - 60 seconds), then repeating the same odd flash, followed by another delay. At each point these things "flash" is the only time you can see them... there is no trailing visible object or "blob". However they clearly flash in different points of the sky, suggesting it is something being maneuvered (i say this, because i have witnessed them double-back on themselves, or do strange A-B-C-D as i have probably posted many times in this thread by now
).

Any other "obvious" solution is out of the question. I have spent many nights researching the web for any idea on "pings" of light just happening in the sky. The nearest thing i could find out was that sometimes very small meteorites can be small enough to not have a trail, and do actually happen to look like a flash of light... but if this - REALLY WERE - the case, one would ask why they seem to happen in the general small patch of sky were the first one occurred (moving from point A-B-C-D and so on). Meteorites tend to be randomly scattered and go form any direction.

The other one possible solution is that these are meteorites hitting the atmosphere at a perfect angle which is symmetrical to your line of sight when looking up. Ok, i can agree with a one-off flash on that idea.... but when spotting 4... 5... 10... or even 20+ within at most 10 minutes time, this is almost like asking for lighting to strike the same random spot 20 times within 10 minutes.

There has also been times as i mentioned in the opening post of this thread, where the flash of light seemed to actually stay lit for longer than the usual sighting (possibly 3 quarters of a second), in which the light left a motion trail and literally turned in the other direction at more-or-less a 100 degree angle. Among other oddity's the spontaneous change in direction is the strangest.

inside your mind, could you answer me the following questions please

what date approx did you first start seeing these flashes etc...?

did you post on this forum quite a bit before this happened...?

what do you think they are...?

The first time i originally noticed this thing was probably back in november of last year (approx.). Generally some time between october/november. So almost a year ago.

I possibly have seen them before unnoticed... but no i had only started browsing this forum as a guest earlier this year.

Personally i'm not quite sure... the nearest thing i can relate to is what i posted in the above comment about meteorites... but that doesn't even make a lot of sense, in the same kind of way that a typical metallic disc sighting turns out to be swamp gas, it really feels like that kind of an explanation (what i'm trying to say is that it would be a forced explanation, that just isn't plausible).

With all respect to the definition of "UFO", i would say it is unidentified and appears to be flying (moving from point to point).

just to explain when i saw my first UFO

August 2008 I saw one in daylight, big enough to be manned (about the size of a 12.5 tonne lorry)

1st January 2010, i saw an orange flame ball about the size of a zorbing ball at about 7pm (it was dark)
10th January 2010, i saw an orange flame ball about the size of a zorbing ball at about 10pm
3rd July 2010, i saw what sceptics usually describe as satellite flying over at 11.15pm (this was reported by someone else here www.uk-ufo.co.uk... ) and also a youtube video was posted filming the same night, although i saw something different, the you tube video is here www.youtube.com... the object in this youtube video link is more like what i saw on the 1st and 10th of january 2010)

15th december 2010, i saw a red flare like object appear about 200ft above me at about 11.30pm, it remained stationery for about 20seconds and then flew off at about 30mph, which i had in my eyesight for about 2 minutes.

from the 15th december until about August I have seen a countless (I really have lost count) amount of objects (UFO's) in the sky at night.

I'm from Dorchester, Dorset BTW...

My mother about 2 weeks ago saw what she was convinced was a satellite reflection at about 8.30pm, the same thing I keep seeing..

Ah okay I get you, and on that note I have seen something weird over the last year or so. Only a few times and once very recently, the sky was clear and I stood looking at the sky and this giant white orb just came almost down (by down I mean like someone dropped into Earth's atmosphere) out of nowhere zoomed across the sky making no sound what so ever and for something that big, you'd expect some, when it flew over the lake near my house it zigged really quickly to another part of the sky but carrying on in the same direction. The zig-zagging orb happened twice, the light appearing from nowhere happened a few times, once it hovered by the moon, slowly moved past a few large stars and then zoomed off faster than any aircraft I know about (man made that is =P)

I know it's not the same thing but we can all agree that the skies are getting very entertaining.

My girlfriend and I have seen the same thing. At about 10:30pm here in Florida we seen a stationary flash of light nearly directly overhead. I counted between intervals which was 50 seconds or so. Then after about 30 minutes we saw the light very dimly move just a half an inch or so at arms length. Out of no where shortly after we observed another flashing object right next to the bright one. These lights then started flashing in much shorter intervals and seemed to disappear. I do not know what we are seeing in the sky, but I too know what satellites and other orbital objects look like in the sky and these lights have no explanation.
