I saw a triangular craft with only red light from front to back on it. Craft stopped over my back yard and shone light down.

One night I heard dogs and thought there were hunters. I looked out window and saw light across the field in woods. I watched light go around in trees for while then it sstarted playing game...when I looked it went out...I looked away it came on...this went on for about 15 minutes. Then light shot out of trees up and over ridge. I left and came back to look a few minutes later to see craft low over field,no blinking lights, only a long red light going from front to back of craft. It took a long time to reach crest of mtn. swinging around peak and coming down gulley of mtn. skimming trees. I got gun and went outside. The craft coming down only had light inside like a cockpit. When got close it turned off light. Stopped over back yard and shined a spotlight at my feet. I ran to house next door and looked back and it was gone.
