Large bright light hovering and making arc like movements.

At approximately 23:20 hours, myself and two friends noticed a large, bright light. It was the level of the hillside across the road. About 100 yards high. It hovered and moved left and right, forward and back.

The distance of the movements was probably a few feet at a time. These movements happened randomly, and were not rhythmic in any way. When the movements were executed they seemed circular, they did not move in a straight line from left to right, but made an arc.

The light was round, bright and white. We could also see a red light that was much smaller and appeared to be behind the white light. At the beginning of the sighting, the object was about a half mile away from us.

After a couple of minutes of watching it, it moved forward toward us to about 1/4 of a mile away. Then it moved back to its original distance. After around 10 minutes it began to move away while keeping the same position in the sky, for the light got smaller and dimmer. It finally moved beyond the crest of the hill and disappeared.
