Object moving erratically in 5-10 degree radial patch of night sky recorded above SE Michigan, other sky objects moved predictably

Single small very bright object in the southern sky above southeastern Michigan-–observed and recorded by a scientist moving around a small radial area of the night sky (a 2-dimensional radial area approximately 5-10 degrees in diameter) located about 5 degrees above the horizon.

Moves in an erratic manner not consistent with any known planetary object in motion or manmade aircraft or spacecraft trajectory. Luminosity consistent with a near atmospheric object. Movement of the bright object is not a consequence of atmospheric conditions or of intrinsic sensory/motor tremor or micro-movements, as “naturally-occurring” near space manmade satellites or far space stellar objects near this object moved in known, predictable patterns and were also recorded.

Since I do not believe in UFO’s, is this possibly a new class of drone? (funded by the Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA?)).
