Unusual movement pattern of bright light with an aura at times.

I'm not sure what we're seeing. We saw the same thing 1 week ago except on Saturday night instead of Sunday night, although both were at the same time of night. It appeared to be a very bright star at first, but then we noticed movement. It would move up, down, left, right--no specific pattern. It seems to be staying in the same place just moving around. It is far away when we see it, so we don't know where it is actually flying over. We also see light flashes of red and green. It is almost like an aura at times with light reflecting in color around it. Sometimes it looks like it is going out, and then we see it light up again. It gradually moves off until out of sight, but continues to have the unusual movement pattern. Maybe MDC is testing aircraft, but I wish someone could tell us what we are seeing.

((NUFORC Note: We assume the witness is describing the star, "Sirius." PD))
