circular object spotted flying in a "pendulum" flying pattern above Lake Forest, California

When going to the bank, as i parked my car i noticed 3 flying lights, of thse 3, 2 moved like an airplane (slow moving to my perspective and not changing direction), one was moving erradically from far away, but moving im my direction (note it did have the mormal red flashing light like a normal plane)(also Note the direction of travel was south east into my position).

So i went into the bank and as i came out, this object had now moved closer and still moved erradically, the motion is as described below: this motion was characterised by a general movement of a pendulum, moving back and forth with some "vibration" as it moved.

As this object was closer, i saw it at about 65 degrees from horizontal. When the motion of the object moved it closer to me, i got a chance of seeing the bottom of this object when i relized it was a round shape because it had rectangular lights aligned in a circle arround the bottom of it.

one further realization was that the manuevers it was doing (although possible to a stunt plane) were not possible, even so when the object appeared at the end of a "pendulum swing" to have dropped straight down.

AS far as the color i coudn't tell since the object was seen at night, and it's lights were seen clarly but not the color.

As far as Sounds, this object didn't make any sounds.
