Strange light(s) in sky with interesting trajectory vanishes into nothingness.

I was outside, smoking a cigarette on my balcony when I realized the sky had cleared up from its cloudy & rainy state, earlier today. I could see some stars, so I moved forward on the balcony to get a better view. There are a lot of trees on my property.

Immediately, a strange looking star caught my eye. It seemed to move around like a bug-- going side to side and up & down, all while moving diagonally upward-- but was shining brilliantly. I noticed there was a hint of a warm color in it, but could not determine which one. Red? Yellowish? Thinking it might be a satellite, I kept my eyes fixed and saw that it was not just one light, though one was brighter than the rest, there was a line of lights, like matinee lights, lighting from front to back in succession.

I felt quite dizzy from the sight, as I have never seen anything of the sort before... & let's just say I am a skeptic on the idea of alien UFOs. It continued to dart around, making me move about my upstairs deck to catch it through trees, until it was visible in a clearing, unobstructed. I had doubted what I had seen until this moment, when I felt sickeningly certain of the bizarre lights and even more bizarre movements. Suddenly, it stopped. I thought my eyes were strained because it became more and more difficult to see. The light became a pinpoint in the sky, hardly visible, and then disappeared completely.

I waited around a little, then went back inside to look up sightings, though I believe it was probably too soon. After a moments searching, I decided to go back out for another look. I stood where I had been on the balcony when the lights vanished, and looked around, examining each star I could see in the area. I feel very hesitant to describe my next experience, as I could just be hyper sensitive due to the mind-blowing phenomena, but I sensed something out of the corner of my eye, very close to me that made me panic, briefly. I was in the front corner of the balcony, second story, and to that corner of my eye there should have only been air-- it was beyond the railing. Strangely, I ignored it and my panic, still scrutinizing the patch of night sky, and then I became overly aware of the "thing" next to me. Turning my head quickly, all I saw was a strange wisp of silver-ish smoke/vapor, but only faintly. It scared me half to death and I ran inside, after which I fo! und this website, knowing that I could probably never tell this story without people's skepticism.

I do wish I could know what I just saw, it was incredible and unbelievable.
