Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Trapezoid shaped hovering craft with dark red flashing lights moved side to side directly above me.

This was my second sighting. I was smoking a cigarette listening to my Ipod in my driveway early one morning when i started to wave my hand over the light to create a slow strobe pattern. After a couple of minutes i took my headphones off and looked at the sky. I didn't hear or see anything come near me, but I looked up and saw a trapezoid shaped craft hovering silently about 75-100 feet above me. The outline of the craft was a flashing red line that was the shape of a trapezoid, two equal sides then the front of the craft was shorter than the bottom. It moved from side to side in a kind of sporadic movement, I was frozen stiff scared and stood there for about 20 seconds staring at it then cautiously waved at it, it then changed to a red and white light pattern and hovered away towards the moon behind my house.
