A bright light from no conventional aircraft behaves erraticly and moves at high speeds

It was dark and i was laying in my bed, i looked out the window and saw a bright white light moving faster than any conventional aircraft. Given the fact that i live close to the Portland International Airport I thought it could be an airplane but it was moving too fast.

After it was almost out of my line of sight it seemed to start behaving strangely and moving up and down. This led me to believe that there could be two craft given the strange motion, i know there was at least one.

The sighting took maybe 30 seconds before i could no longer see it.

I thought this could be a satellite but given its erratic behavior i do not believe this.

This is the first time i have ever seen a UFO but my mother saw one in 1972.

I have shown interest in UFO's but I'm not one to make up stories for public attention.

The backdrop in the sky was the dark sky in Portland but there was an orange hue coming from a street light.
