I was scanning the sky south from my upstairs patio, which faces south. There were scattered clouds but they did not block my line of sight. I was out there because a couple of days ago I saw a group or stars that appeared like they were in a circle (see YouTube [Link moved to FI section/cms/tg]). I had the camera on and all of a sudden I got a warning on the LCD I had never seen before: "This battery is incompatible with your camera." I thought I would go in and change the battery, but then I remembered how another sighting turned off my cell phone, so I went back out and using low-light mode scanned the southern sky at about 75 degree again. I had zoom in to about 2-30x when I saw a blue, pulsating light, stationary. It was changing colors in all spectrums, and even though I was using fixed focus I could not get a good edge detail, there was some kind of aura around it. My cell phone got turned off 3 more times, so I got another battery. This time I was able to film it for about 20 minutes. I zoomed out to let viewer see that it was very far away, not visible to the naked eye, only when I zoomed way in. It was not a star, in my opinion, as it constantly changed colors in an amazing way. Since it was so far away it could not have been an artificial source, such as a hovering toy, etc. I think it was at least 100 miles out and was probably very large.
