Further Description of Sighting: a friend and I went fishing one night.around 12:30am we saw a huge white object high in the sky.It was above the siris clouds and appeared to be 2/3 the size of the almost full moon.It was traveling very slowly.
In the 15 minutes we watched it,it went in a straight line, changed from a white color to a light yellowish brown, and moved about 20 degrees in the sky.A very,very,very small light came on 3 seconds and then went off,this happened 3 times in 15 minutes.It looked like a huge round rock or an astroid.
I am out at night a lot either fishing or camping I know what stars,planets,manmade objects in orbit,shooting stars, airplanes and twinking stars are,this object looked nothing like any of these things,completly different.It had to be at least 8 miles high because it was above the siris clouds.
My guess is that it was 10 to 50 miles high which would mean that it was from 1200 feet to a mile wide.
