Abnormal Movement of Unknown Object

The object approached out to the west the color was red and white; at all times the object color was red and white; the object sort of resembled a star that is how small it was. After approaching from the west it stopped for a time see ref #1; The object then proceeded to move south see ref #2 in which it moved right to left and also in a circular motion at all times it should be mentioned the object used the same motions; stop, move either left to right and in a circular motion. The object was observed against a ship light for reference to make sure the object was moving; also the star before the big dipper juts-up the star which is not part of the big dipper in the handle was also used for reference. The object proceeded to move north past the ship light see Ref #3 which the ship light for the whole time to this period was fixed; after the object moved to the right of the very bright ship light the ship started moving due south ref #4. At this time I cut a hole into a piece of paper and secured it placing my face at least 6 inches away from the hole to double check to see again if it was my eyes playing tricks, but the object was moving as mentioned above moving out of the range of the cutout. One note at no time did the object move north of the last star in the handle of the big dipper as if it was a boundary. Also the object seemed to move west at one time to chase a very faint light south to north moving like a strobe on a aircraft which one could barely make out the light it was so dim. You almost had to catch it out of the corner of your eye. Ref #5 and #6; leaving the coastal position after about a hour or hour and a half I was beyond the tree line when the object came closer and was brighter than before; it moved very rapidly form right to left (north to south) and then back north disappearing behind the trees. I then spotted somebody with a very bright flashlight as though they were searching for somebody. ! end of encounter.
