lights in the sky

my daughter called me into the back porch yelling about a ufo LOL.i went in to check and i ran out the back door and saw in the northern sky an object about the size of a quarter held at arms lingth.

it has a white light on top and a red light on the bottom.( the red was larger i would say 4 times the size of the white light) the white light was flasing like a strobe but slower. Very bright . it was moving fron west to east at a high rate of speed.and just stoped for a fiew seconds then went streight up, then to the right then back to the left FAST. droped down to about 20 degrees above the horizon and apeared to head north.almost out of view, then came back south at an upwerd trajectory, or seemed to gain altitude, ( bad spelling) to about 45 degrees above the horizon. started to move at a high rate of speed in all directions up and down and side to side. went to the east and sat for a fiew, maby 10 seconds then vanished. we started to go back in the house when i saw it again coming streight west then south streight at us. and vanished. this time we didnt see it again. it never wobbled or seemed to bob around, it was streight and solid in its pattern. couldnt made out a shape or could even guess at the size. it was at a high altitude, had to be a large object to see it as well as we did. at the size of a quarter at arms lingth. i took pictures with my digital camera but all turned out black :(. the distance between the lights (top and bottom) was about 1/4 in at arms lingth.

the 3 obserevers are all adults, 2 working and im retired from the sherifss off.
