Moving balls of light.

I reported a sighting a few months ago and have basically been seeing the same things off and on for awhile. My previous one was the "rather not say" when asked what town. Reason being I come from a very for lack of a better term "traditional minded" area and I don't want to be known that I have been seeing lights lately. Since that first report I have been noticing the same styled balls of light on occassion going through a certain field by my house and dropping so low to the ground I thought a few times the lights would actually land. They would hover there and then abruptly shoot quickly up and fly away.

That's the back story to tonight. Again like the last report, I went out to have a cigarette and saw two gigantic lights one slightly above the other. At this point admittingly I suspected it be a show again and watched. They moved in a jittery fashion in zigzags up and down, "U" shapes, and diamond shapes. Also they would move straight up and down. The bottom one was more active. They would get brighter and larger, then dim to almost nothing. The movements of the two didn't seem to have a pattern together. After awhile I looked to my side and at first it looked like a ton of smaller lights were slowly gliding through the sky as well, but I noticed the moon also looked like it might be moving in the same direction and decided it was just an effect of fast moving clouds passing through.

This made me wonder if that could be the case with the big lights so I turned to their direction again and looked at all the stars there, the stars in that direction didn't seem to be nearly as effected with the cloud movement and I also realized their effect made stars look like they only went in one specific direction regardless. Not up, down, zigzag etc. That also made me wonder if the clouds might have something to do with the dimming and brightening, but I noticed they would brighten and dim when there were no clouds and in fact tended to get very bright when a cloud passed them and could still be seen moving about, then as before would stop, then move again. They would change from white, yellow, blue, green and red, but mostly just white and blue. After about 20 minutes I went inside because it was to cold to stay out. I would at this point like to know what it is I'm seeing the past few months. I do know there is an air force base nearby, and they may be some sort of weird new plane?
