I'm kind of a troll, thus my first post.
I'm not going to talk my self up and say I'm any kind of astronomer, but I have always had a great interest in the sky. So I do know what
satellites, asteroids, etc. look like while traveling across the night sky. But as of recently I have been seeing, quite to the T, what was described
in the OP. In my experience, it's happened twice in the last week, both happened in the same spot in the sky.I live in Southeastern Michigan.
Both instances I had come home from work (not seeing anything in the sky as I walked up to my place), went inside briefly to grab a cigarette, and
stepped back outside.
The first time, last thursday, I was standing and pouting about how dim the stars are due to the light pollution around me, I then saw something blink
quite brightly in the North / Northeastern sky (My right side). This object would only blink one color, white (I'd say it looked like a star, but it
was way too bright), and had different time intervals between blinks (anywhere from 2-20 seconds). The object didn't seem to move for the first few
minutes, but then it blinked once, disappeared, and blinked northwest of me (now to an extreme left of me). It stayed there for the duration of my
cigarette, then jumped back, blinked once, and disappeared. I was outside for a good 10 minutes afterwards trying to see where it had possibly moved,
but could not find it.
The second time it happened, last night around 11:15-11:30 EST it was blinking quicker (now 2-10 seconds) but did almost exactly the same formation /
pattern as the first time, except reversed. This time it started in the northwest and jumped to the northeastern sky, then back, and disappeared.
(probably lasted about 8 minutes this time).
I'm not going to jump to any crazy conclusions, but this definitely did peak my interest, especially after seeing other people saw (possibly) the
