First I saw small white lights from a distance, then a big creamy colored light up close.

I was up late up night because I couldn't sleep. Hoping to fall asleep, I began gazing out the window, up at the stars. Then I noticed small white lights dashing in all directions arcoss the sky.I'd say there were about five of them.I watched them for awhile, wondering what they were. Then as half-way as a joke, I went to get the most powerful flash-light I could find. Then I returned to the window, and then started flashing the light towards them. They seemed to respond, flashing back as flashed. I even flashed the light in a sequence,once every two seconds, and they repeated it back to me. Right after that, a large,oval-shaped,creamy-white light,with a haze of the same color all around it, flashed right behind a tree about twenty feet away from the window.It looked like it was hovering, didn't land, but just stayed there for a second.It only did this once. I was so scared, I put the light out, pulled down the shades, and tried to find a different way to get to sleep. The next night, I had a friend stay the night with me. I'd told her about it, and we wanted to see if they would appear again. Again,the smaller lights appeared, and We both saw them. And we tried flashing them with the flash-light, but the large oval light never showed itself to us, or me again.
