Third clear night UFO sighting observed in Western sky with red and greenish blinking lights, Lewiston, Maine.

My husband and I sit on our back porch many evenings. For 3 of the past clear nights we have observed in the sky an object we cannot identify. This evening it was first seen again at about 20 - 30 degrees off the horizon, in the western sky. The object appeared to be round in shape, with blinking red and green lights. It would move slightly about 5 degrees first to the north,then south,the east and west. Then it moved very slowly downward, as if perhaps it might land somewhere. We could still see it in the sky, but very low. We called the tower at the Portland Jetport to report tyhis unusual sighting. We asked if anything could be observed on radar. The gal told us there was only one plane that could be seen on radar. We also saw this same plane she was referring to. This was NOT the same object we were observing, but another.There was nothing else shown on radar. The gal suggested we call your center to report sighting. My husband and myself are both self employed professionals. We are also intelligent, sane people. We both are in our early fifties. We have clear minds and do not suffer from any mental problems, dementia or hallucinations of any kind. Neither of us consume alcohol, and were of sound mind when we saw/have seen this object last three clear nights. We can supply you with references if necessary.
