Unusual lights in Sanford Florida

On July 29, 2006 at approximately 11:45 pm, I was sitting on the back porch of my house looking at the stars. Nothing unusual but then I noticed one was moving in unusual patterns and was flashing red light. It would hover without any movement then it would suddenly move in strange directions. It darted left, then right, then forward, then backward in random patterns. It even made half circles, full circles, and a figure 8. I called my family out to see it because I couldn't figure out what it was. It wasn't a plane because of the patterns and it wasn't a helicopter because it was so far up in the sky. This went on for about an hour until it faded in the distance. I called the local police and they said they had no other reports. I then noticed another one several miles away from the first one which was still visible. Finally I went out in front of the house and noted a third. Also while this was occuring, there were continuous flashes of white light which appeared to be closer to the ground. It was not raining and the skies were clear with no reports of thundstorms in the area.
