Small light like moving star over Death Valley

While camping at Death Valley N.P. recently, i noticed what looked just like another 'star' moving around slowly in the sky right above the little settlement of Furnace Creek, this is the HEART and middle of Death Valley. I was about 2 miles up and to the east camping off a backcountry road. I watched this little dot of light, indistinguishable from other stars in the clear night sky, dart around and make 90degree turns, then move only slowly for a while (like blowing on the upper winds) then return to it's post DIRECTLY above Furnace Creek. I heard no sounds. The way it was moving, i don't think it could be anything our human technology is capable of. It was curious to me that I couldn't make out any real shape, just the small dot of light like a star. I kept watching for 15 mins or so then went in the van and the next time i looked it was gone. Too weird! Just thought I'd tell ya- thanx!
