Location: Rootstown, OH
Shape: Unknown
Duration: >10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Eratic white and red light flying near the horizon

I was star gazing when I saw a strange moving light in the lower part of the horizon South-Southeast towards Randolph-Atwater. At first I thought it was a plane but it was moving randomly in the same region of the sky. It alternated between white, red, and maybe blueish lights. I next thought it was a law enforcement helicopter doing IR sweeps but the movements were too eratic and always in the same area of the sky. From my perspective it moved easily an 1"-1.5" in any direction at any given time.
