Characteristics: Lights on object, Aircraft nearby
Looking towards the north we saw an object with reddish and white lights. It was moving in right angles, then staight up and down very rapidly.
Three of us had been inside finishing up a churh discussion group, when the topic of UFO's came up. It was around 9:00 pm when we went outdoors. One woman said she had seen one from her car years ago in California. I mentioned I had seen one in Maryland in 1984 or 1985 near the Washington, DC Beltway in Silver Spring, MD and started describing what I had seen. As soon as I started describing it, I looked up into the sky and said,"I can't believe it! Look north over there, that is exactly what I saw six or seven years ago!" It appeared to be one object, very far in the distance with some colored lights, white, reddish, possibly green. The object was moving straight up and down, then in right angles, like it was climbing stairs, then it looked like it disappeared, but it reappeared further to the west (or it was another similar object). Then moved in the same perpendicular type of motion, very quickly up and down then it just went straight up very rapidly and disappeared from our view. It was too far away to see anything but the lights, but the movement was definitely NOT like any aircraft I have ever seen, except for that] sighting in November of 1984 or 1985 in Maryland.
