2001-06 Cancun Mexico - distant bright orange dancing light

This occurred during the week of 6/7/01 - 6/14/01, on a clear night on the beach in Cancun, Mexico (seen from the Gulf side). We were facing North, looking almost exactly straight up.

I'm not very good at describing distances, but the activity occurred I would guess a few thousand feet over normal air traffic. It was a small bright orange light that seemed to be dancing around. My husband and I couldn't make out what could have been causing it. We know two things for sure based on the abnormalities of the object's movement and the level it was at - it was not an airplane, and was not a light from the ground.

As far us the observers go, my husband and I consider ourselves level-headed people, and really were amazed that the only conclusion we had was that it was a UFO, and we actually think it was either of military or alien origin. Strange for us, but that's all we could come up with. I am a software developer, and he is a financial analyst. So...all in all...two normal people who know they saw something that wasn't.
