Flashing Lights over Kahurangi 15/11/2017

This light (satellite, planet, something else) is a regular visitor to our skies. Often low on the eastern horizon and always flashing through a range of col...

A beautiful star? If only you had a scope, but still an amazing capture!

I can't wait Martin. I read a couple of yrs back a thing on Trevor Constable's critters and it took abit for me to digest the info, now I might be ready.

Attn Elana: I am RIGHT NOW busy on a blog about plasma and the "Trevor Constable critters", so what a coincidence, eh??

Wait until you hear my theory, it's right up your alley!

As for this footage, I can't say for sure. Could be a star, I'll have look....

this ain't no disco. Woah SG and Rose, what the heck is it and ur camera can't get a handle on it either. Some definite strange goin on. Havin electronic set backs here, like today had to smash open hubby's truck keys with a pocket knife because I could not even dislodge the key from it's case it retracts back into when u press a button and only when by disabling the auto remote lock part could I prise the key out so it would go in ignition...no wonder I get so paranoid bout driving these days. The rainbow colours on that thing of yours in the sky I'd agree caused by so much aerosol smog. Interested to see where this leads..North Korea anyone.

Must keep an eye out to see if similar is visible in my night sky ... nice work Saru G.

This definitely looks like one of Trevor Constable's "critters" inhabiting our atmosphere.

Weird? As weird as it is that it is hanging around here during yet another 'global' defence 'exercise'.

I have been watching the same object hang out in our skies but have never seen it as 'light active' as it was last night.  The air is full of plasma... look for the slight red tinge at night.

Agreed Sarah. Pretty sure it's not a planet due to its flashing colours and location in sky. And we see it in different locations. Certainly not a star either and too low on horizon to be a satellite reflecting off the sun. And none of these would explain the flashing colours or why it needs to be so bright. And the inability of the camera to focus without getting the big fuzzy ball is just weird.

 Rings in there. I feel that these things want to be seen there is no reason such technology needs to show lights.
