Unknown light moving above Buffalo/Williamsville area, second sighting in a week

I looked out my bedroom window before going to bed and noticed a cross/star shaped light with two small red lights within a few feet of the main light in the sky about 1 mile away. I figured it was just a plane, but since I had seen three mysterious lights in the same area earlier in the week, I decided to watch to see if they behaved in a similair fashion. After appearing to hover for a few minutes, the lights suddenly began to bob and weave, rapidly ascending a short distance then falling back below the tree line, appearing a short distance away in a few seconds, then moving in apparently random patterns including figure eights and loops. I am not currenly aware of any helicopter or plane that could have done this without some change in the quality and direction of the lights.

Also, I do live relatively close to the Buffalo International Airport, but I also saw a plane pass by far overhead while the lights were moving in patterns, and it most definetly did not resemble what I was seeing.
