Bright Star Turns into Pitch Black Diamond with blinking lights.

It was a usual night... It was around 11:40pm and I was fixing a friends computer while he was playing a video game on mine. I decided to take a break and go outside for a cigarette to kill time while i was updating his computer...

I was outside on my front porch as I looked to my right and noticed a bright flashing object. Now at first i figured it was a star... but then I looked at the usual spot where the north star was and saw it. I compared that star to the object and saw that the object was flashing wildly. It changed colors from orangish to reddish.

Then the objects glare which made it look like a star faded for approx 1 second and came back. So I ran inside to grab my friend and told him to check this out. I noticed it had moved a little bit. It was slowly travelling to the left. But It was so slow that I could hardly tell it was moving at all.

I pointed it out to my friend and he couldnt explain what it was. The object then seemed to be coming towards us. The star like object was getting brighter and bigger so my friend started to run. I grabbed hold of him and told him not to be scared and that it was interesting.

Suddenly the object came into clear view and the Star like appearence faded and the object turned out to be a pure black diamond shape object with red blinking lights.

Now I thought... OK.. Its starting to look like a plane, but there is no noise, it was a silent night and why is it pitch back compared to the blueish night sky and diamond shape. It was close enough to see... Im not good at measuring but probably got as close as a few thousand feet from us. It then looked as if it was gliding in the air. Its flight pattern was that of a half circle or as a curve ball would be thrown. I have seen other UFO's that I could not explain but this was the closest I have ever gotten.
