Last night my mom yelled for me to come outside she thought her eyes were playing a trick on her... As funny as it would usually be to me I was shocked at what i saw. I ran inside and woke my fiance up and made him come outside to look as well. I am located by Wyandotte ave. School and in the sky towards Hobbies Chevrolet at about 12:30am to atleast 2:00am there was a flashing light the kept moving around in the sky it would come down low and then shoot back up and would get dim and then really bright. I wont say I dont believe in UFO's but i have been unable to figure out exactly what it was. I even woke up one of my nephews and made him come outside to look at it and he was asking me what kind of drugs i was on, until he came out and looked for himself.... Did anyone else see it or does anyone else know what it was? I am so curious. LOL

Was there a train sitting on the tracks near Hobbie at the time?

What you are describing sounds like an oscillating headlight as used on railroad locomotives. They move up and down and side to side. Known as a "Mars" light or "Gyralite". They are very bright and throw a light beam for long distances. A video of one in operation:

No this light was too high up to be a train light and it was moving all over it would drop down low and then shoot back up high. Im baffled still.
