Summary : Bright white object observed to the West at about treetop level, gained altitude and flew off silently

Saw a bright white object which appeared to be hovering at treetop level a few miles to the West of my home in Owings Mills Md. The light was pulsating about once/second, and was much brighter than any aircraft light I had everseen. After a minute or two, it gained altitude and flew off to the southeast. As soon as it stopped hovering, the light dimmed to a more normal level. As it flew off, I sawa blinking red light near the white one. Itwas too dark to see anything of the craft itself.I initially thought it was a Helicopter with a searchlight, but it was absolutely silent. We have helicopter overflights on occasion,both military and commercial, and, at thedistance I observed this object, they arequite easily heard. The neighborhood wasquiet, and I should have been able to heara helicopter. Also, if it was a searchlight,it was not pointed at the ground as one wouldhave expected with a helicopter.I am a 40 year old Electronics Engineer, and am a stable individual. We just moved intothis house in Owings Mills last summer. Itis a more rural area than our last house,and has frequent overflights by military cargo planes flying in a corridor thatusually extends from the southwest to thenortheast.
