Characteristics: Aura or haze around object
I stepped out onto my backyard around 12:30AM. The backyard faces north. To the northeast I saw a green dot or orb between two trees. It was close to the horizon the sky was clear. I thought it strange due to its color.
It was stationary for a bit before it moved erratically. The movement was zig zagging up and down. Very unlike any human made aircraft. I thought maybe it was my contacts messing with me.
I moved around my backyard to get different points of view but it stayed up in the sky. I then noticed an orange light that was stationary northeast of the green light. The orange light was dimmer then the green light. It had a beam of light attached to the green light. Both the orange light and beam of light faded out periodically. Both lights were moving closer to the horizon and fading. I assumed then that they were heading north. I thought to call any of my friends that would be up. My roommate works late and I called her she didn't answer. I called my friend and he was unfortunately drunk or high and didn't believe me. During my phone call to my friend my roommate came home. I hung up on my friend. Then I ran out front to tell her to hurry the %Y## up and follow me to the backyard. To which see saw the same thing I saw. The green light continued to move erratically and fade from view. I tried to convince my roommate to drive north to get a better view. Unfortunately when we drove the city lights obscured any pin pointing of light.
