Hi there guys, yesterday my dad woke me up at 6:00 am Mexico time asking if I could recognize an object he saw, I ran to see it. It was a star with strange blinking patterns from white-purple-green lights, I know stars blink but not that way (or probably never saw something similar) so I took my T2i with the 300mm lens and took a few shots of it, it showed a trail like the other stars but this one was very strange indeed. Also recorded a video using the crop mode and tried to focus it the best I could.

I have no idea what it is, so please watch out the skies. The location was East-west from 6 am to sunrise...


Any ideas of what is it?

Here is the pics and the video. Sorry for my crappy english.
