Flashing green and red light not a plane or satellite.

I caught movement out of the corner of my eye while sitting on the porch at 8:20 pm. It looked like a moving star- slow but steady, and clearly pulsed red/green as it moved in various directions, stopping abruptly, then moving again.

This was in the first several seconds. I had my iPhone 15 Pro Max and got the video started. I got 5:16 of video. I was able to lean against the framework of the porch and get a generally steady video, not jumpy or shaky. The light moved around and stopped, being stationary several seconds at a time. Finally, a second similar light comes into view. The first light suddenly flares white very brightly and spiky. It was dazzling, then sped off in a split second.

My wife came out at one point, you can hear us talking as she asks from the doorway what I’m doing. She comes out and sees the same thing, describing it some as well.
