Edmonton, Alberta, Canada - 04-26-15
Shape: Formation - Duration: 10 minutes
Two lights move towards each other, followed by a complete formation appearing, Edmonton, AB.
I am on my days off from working nightshift, and I am unpacking, as I recently moved. It was about 1:00 AM (01:00HR's) when I was looking out my window wishing I had the lenses for my telescope when I noticed a peculiar star just above the horizon.
It was blinking in a • • - • • - pattern, like morse code, changing from white to red.
After looking at it for about a minute, I noticed another smaller object blinking in an on/off pattern moving closer to the first star-like object. I watched it until came to approximately the half way point, from its immediate position.
At that point a formation of red lights appeared in an almost trapezoid pattern. I then went to grab my SLR camera with a telephoto lens; by the time I got back the lights and formations were gone.
While viewing the objects it almost appeared that the normal shade of horizon lit up. I looked away and back again to make sure it wasn't something I was hallucinating. It was a strange experience.
There was aircraft following normal commercial flight paths, no other known behaviours.
