There are Meteor showers every month of the year with the exception of Feb.,Mar.and June.

Planets and stars are very colorful looking out through our atmosphere.

I saw that same triangle in 2000 in New Hampshire. It was tree top height and moved very slowly. It scared the crap out of me...and I hid in my house watching out the sky lights. And then it zipped off. Very weird. I chalked it up to a new government plane.

Ok, I still do not know exactly how to do much on this site, but one of those posted "UFO" pics looks JUST like something I myself caught in my telescope while I was struggling to learn how to use my camera with it. I'll post where I have the pic on my FaceBook, & hopefuly that link works...
By the way...,
if anyone can tell how to just post a pic on here, would be greatly appreciated

I seen this object last winter it would show up around 2 AM and also I called the police. The officer just looked stunned by it, she said it looked like a kaleidoscope.
As she was leaving, I asked for her final opinion of what she thought it was and she replied, "I don't think it's of this world, is what I think". I told her I was going to file a report with Mufon and she gave me her card and said that she will back up my story.

It's rather worrying when the Police aren't able to determine stars from UFO's!! And they give these people guns??




Really? You're being sarcastic I hope. Last I knew they were cops...not astronomers.

Man, the denial is ridiculously strong here.
Do those pictures look anything like stars twinkling in the sky?

I absolutely say, legit.
But whether it's extraterrestrial, terrestrial or dimensional, I have no idea.

I believe if you zoom in to the max onto a light source on a digital camera the result is a diamond image

Hate to be a party pooper but ...

Officers say the object remained stationary and twinkled with red, green, blue and orange light.

Sounds like a Star to me

Around 8pm the object was joined by a second light that appeared closer to the horizon and near Freeburg. According to witnesses that object also appeared to twinkle with red, green, blue and orange light.

Two Stars ... anyone got Stellarium .


The paper reported the object remained stationary for some time, twinkling with red, green, blue and orange light. After 8 p.m., the object slowly rose and a second light was seen on the horizon from what seemed to be the Freeburg area. Law enforcement left to answer routine radio calls, but some residents stayed watching with the aid of a telescope. It’s not clear how the siting ended.

“We are near Scott Air Force Base. Scott officials said they had nothing in the area,” Wienhoff said, “Some people say it might be a planet, maybe Jupiter, or a satellite .”

I donno what stars you're lookin at every night but you seem quick to attempt to debunk any UFO case that gets posted.

Wonder why that is...

Maybe its because I'm a paid dis-info agent

Or maybe its just because most of the ones that get posted here are Bunk and have an obvious explanation , plane , lantern , balloon , CGI ...and on and on .

In this case I gave an opinion that it sounds like a description of stars , just my opinion , if you don't like that opinion fine but I have the right to express it .

I'm certainly NO expert... and I have never "zoomed" in on stars... but as a casual ground observer of stars, I have never seen them look like this.

Judging by the eyewitness's testimony in this report, it doesn't sound like it would be a star. Unless stars can grow to be the size of a soccer ball and have rotating lights...



Just say'n.

Zoom in to a scintilating star enough, and it's anything but a round dot in the sky. It looks like it's FLAILING colors with the speed of super-rapidly sparkling LED lights in all directions. It looks like two rainbow-illuminated chrome cats, fighting inside of a bag...for lack of a better description.

Having a "shape" in photographs does NOT rule out a scintillating star. A camera catches the "sparks" of light in all directions, during the exposure length. The star paints the sensor, or film with spashes of color in a random pattern for each exposure.

I am very much into astronomy, astro photography, and UFOlogy. Scintillating stars, in the right conditions, can really grab your attention. Stare at them long enough and you swear, they are moving around. They fool me all the time. If you see one, check reference stars around it, to establish a location, and then head to Stellarium to confirm.

Stars scintillate mostly when they are low on the horizon, and when the air is crisp.

I am not saying the OP is not a UFO, but the shots and info provided, are very consistent with what you would see from a scintillating star.

EDIT:
Confirmed on Stellarium that Capella was right there in the Northeast horizon, where they saw this UFO.

Would this fool you, or grab your attention? Yes, especially if you don't get out much at night.

I understand that under certain circumstances, stars can appear to flash different colours, particularly when close to the horizon when the atmosphere is adding to the effect. What I dont understand is why a group of people, including police officers, suddenly decide this is something extremely unusual- unusual enough to report. Why would this night be so special? Have they never seen this phenomena before? Surely they would have seen this before if its just a particular star that is there every night?
