Small UFO moving in backyard with red and white lights

I remember it being a windy night when I was inside my house on the computer. Unlike all the other nights I sit at this place at my computer, I had a strange feeling something wasn't right. I had to keep glancing over my shoulder checking the large window behind me. Between the window and the computer is about an eight foot distance to where I observed a UFO, whilst I sat in the chair. Each time I looked all I saw outside my window was the trees blowing in the wind and the other usual things.

Until I had the most overwhelming feeling something was watching me. I ignored it for a few seconds, but the longer I did the more nervous I got. I turned around fully and looked through the window, whilst sitting in the chair. I saw a circular object in the corner of where my backyard is outside. I watched it, realizing it was moving. I observed the difference between this strange light and the light of another residence through my backyard (I live in a suburban area). There was a definite difference and it was unlike anything I ever even heard of, as it was not a typical UFO, which is large.

The light came closer, until it seemed to be only 15 or twenty feet away from the window outside. For the first few seconds, it looked had white light emanating from it, with a red light on top. The lights were flashing within the object. Then the red lights on the UFO seemed to be moving from the top of the UFO to the bottom. And as it continued to move closer to the window, I ran away from the room as I felt the object was watching me and could see me in my house. I believe my feelings are right, and not silly. Again, the object appeared to be about five to seven feet long, and about the same amount wide, yet it might have been saucer shaped. The shape was difficult to discern, yet it seemed closest to a circle.

This light from the UFO had a shape though and was extremely clear to my eyes and I am sure I can't explain it as a normal occurence. I was 20 years old the night I saw it. I did not really believe it was a UFO until I heard in a documentary about "alien probes" appearing over suburban areas. The conditions from the room I was observing in, included a lamp light, which was on and a few feet away from the window next to it. Yet, this light did nothing to distort the image. The light of this thing appeared to my eyes to be moving in the middle of my backyard probably 15 feet off the ground. Another detail is that this object was one hundred percent light, but had a definite form, as the red light shifted from top to bottom. At least it appeared to be all light from my vantage point.
