Saw a bright flashing star in the nw sky at 10.20pm which appeared to have a tail. my husband and i looked through two sets of binos and saw that it wasn't a star as it had colours flashing around it (red, white, blue and green). after keeping eye contact on it for approx 5 minutes it started making shapes in the sky - i've never seen anything like it - it was like a magic wand in the sky we saw large circles with tails, swiggly lines sharp movements moving from left to right. i saw the shapes first and my husband said it was the movement of my binos, until he saw it and couldn't beleive what he was seeing. it last for about 10 minutes then began to fade. when we thought it had gone, red and white dots appeared randomly to the right of where we originally saw it, blinking in various position in a vertical position. we have a telegraph pole in the field which was within our field of view which we used as a marker for the random dots.
