I was sitting in my backyard the night of July 4th watching fireworks. I saw a red light above my head at first I thought it was a drone, but the way it moved no drawn that I know of can move like that. It moved back and forth up and down sharp angles and very quickly. I went to grab my cell phone to capture it on video. By the time I pulled my camera up, it appeared to be hiding behind a cloud. I could see a faint red orb. then from behind the cloud I saw a bunch of flashing multi-colored lights like a strobe disco light. I came out from behind the cloud and I was videoing it or trying to. I followed it, it started to move away as soon as I started recording it. I followed it for several yards I think. The orb went straight back went straight back and then dropped straight down next to the Moon I also saw a flash of something out of the corner of my eye on the right hand side but I was busy trying to video the red orb. I examined the video and there are cle! arly three objects in some of the frame 1 being the Moon, two other objects unknown. literally 5 minutes after this encounter I brought my bird inside the house without the front window I saw a bright white light in front of the house and I will make a separate report for that sighting that one there were several adult witnesses and a couple of children. I have extensive footage of that for that event lasted about 30 minutes. I have both still shots and video.
