Characteristics: Lights on object, Aircraft nearby

Around 8:00 pm I noticed a low, but bright (slightly orange) light near the horizon, yet above the tree line. Somehow it got my attention; I swore it moved. I watched for a minute--nothing.

Then it suddenly jerked to the lower right. I watched for another minute and it did not move. Then I ran inside to grab my phone so I could tape it.

When I went back it was still there. Again it seemed to move (down), this time not as far and at a slower speed. As I was fumbling for my phone settings, it then it (slightly faster then your typical airplane) dropped below the level of trees in a straight line. The light also appeared to have a very faint flashing light attached to it.
