It moved up down and sided to side in a small area as it would be easy to ignore but it is noticable from the color and movement if yo

It is a Light that moves in a small hovering area and it moves up and down and side to side. It is doing it next to the full moon. The light from it is as bright as a very bright star but has a yellow coloring and doesn't flicker. I know it is not a star as it is not stable in one area. I froze in one spot to see if it was me or the object and it was the object moving. I also was looking at the star at the same time and it moved tward the star and then moved up from it. I also used the window pane as a guide to see if it was moving. I have never reported to anything remotely like this before.

((NUFORC Note: The Moon would be in the western sky, we believe, at this time of the morning. Hence, the witness would be looking generally west. We do not know what the witness was looking at, although we feel that a celestial body of some type would be the first possibility to be ruled out. PD))
