I was sitting outside after watching fireworks with my family, I was alone. I looked up at the sky and I focused on one "star". After a while I noticed the "star" started moving. I thought my eyes were playing tricks wth me, so I focused on another star. To prove my point the second star didn't move. I turned toward the first star. It was still there but in a different location. I kept looking at it think it might have been a plane, but I don't know of any plane that emits a white light and hovers. So then I thought it was a helicopter. But I know helicopters can't fly that high. Then it moved in a straight line, but it wasn't no usual line. As it was moving it would shuttered. It would dip down and then back up, while keeping it's forward momentum. Then it stopped. During this time I was rushing around to find my video camera, but when I found it I couldn't focus enough on it to get a good picture. I couldn't see anything through the camera, so I put it down. And in the corner of my eye I saw more movement. I turn towards the movement and I noticed two lights moving in a cirrcular motion. They stopped and then one took off going away from me and as it was leaving it would pulse a white light. It would light up and then slowly die out. It repeated this until I lost sight of it. Then I looked at the other one. It did the same thing maybe a minute later. Then I looked back at the first "star". It was in the same area but once again it moved in location. Then I saw another light leave from the star I was looking at and I followed that with my eyes. Then I would look at other lights noticing that most of them moved in the way the first one did. I kept watching them, not noticing the almost 2 hours have past. I hated to leave it but I had to go to sleep. But all day today I have been thinking about what I had seen last night. I still don't know what to make of it.
