Within 5 minutes after I took pictures of the blinker. Mike DeVarennes
called and I told him what just happened and asked him to go outside and
look around. I then hung up and went outside and saw two other objects.

Today I recieved this email from him.

    ...after I got off the phone with you I shot a few seconds of a blinker
from my apt   ...by the time I got my tripod ready it had disapeared.  Also
last week I kept seeing this white cylindrical deal kept appearing and
disappearing and was able to catch a sec of it, evrytime I would zoom in the
$#%#% would fade out   ...mabe your tv will show better detail.
