North-East Sky, Flashing Red Blue and White, What is this?

5 posts in this topic

I can see a flashing star in the sky which i first though was a plane. It did not move for several minutes so i looked at it with my telescope. It is flashing blue red and white. It is located in the constellation Auriga. Anyone in North America around to tell me what this is?
