hovering flashing lights, spotlight shining on my house

I and a friend were observing a thunderstorm on the horizon. A red light appeared on the horizon and moved across the sky towards us. As it got closer, it became clear that it was more than one light. It was a cluster of about 6 to 8 lights, arranged in a roughly circular array, with 4 lights, corresponding to 0, 90, 180, and 270 degrees on the circle, being brighter than the rest. This cluster of lights was flashing in a bizarre way, not in a pattern. It was difficult to discern any physical shape other than the lights, but as it hovered above my house, I estimated its altitude to be about 200 feet. It made no sound whatsoever, that I could tell. As it stopped above the house, a spotlight shone down from it. At this time, I became frightened and ran into the house, followed closely by my friend.
