Strange Light in Coastal Sky

We observed a very bright light approach us from the SW. The light did not waver as to intensity the entire time. What was of concern was the manner of movement, it would move to the left and right, up and down. At one point we saw the light come to a complete stop, move up and down then it proceeded on its orignal flight path. This is the first time I have ever seen anything like this. I am ex Military and Law Enforcement, I am pretty up on anything that flies. This was moving like NOTHING I or the others present had ever seen.
