dancing light above lancaster

I was in the field behind the old Walmart by ave P (Rancho Vista blvd) and 3rd st east, lying on my back in the dirt, because I had just been in a heated argument with my girl friend, whom I lived with at the time, and I had to leave the house, and the field was the only place I could go without having to walk around for a few hours. While I lied there, just clearing my mind, and looking at the stars and planes in the night sky, I noticed light /sphere approx. 30-60 miles away in the dist, high in the north sky.

It danced, almost doing loop d’ loops up and down in an erratic pattern. It seemed that it was above Lancaster , but cant say for sure. Not beleving what I was seeing, I put my right thumb up next to it and a star nearby and held it still to see if possibly my eyes or head were moving , but sure enough, I was able to assure myself I was not hallucinating. After a couple of minutes of watching this thing, and assuming it was some experimental craft or missile from Skunkworks, I lost interest for a few moments. When looking back to see study the object more I noticed it bob and weave, then rapidly move out of sight in a north bound direction.

For the longest time I thought it was some experimental guided missile. But why would the Gov. test the object near a populated area. I've seen the YF22’s hovering about the palmdale airport area before and the donut shaped contrails in the nineties, but only seem something similar on future weapons. This thing was to crazy to test around here. that’s all my gut feeling tells me.
