Sitting on my third floor deck, I was watching what I assumed to be a plane. At first, all I could see was a bright red light.

Suddenly, it shot straight up, hovered, then descended back to where I had first seen it. I got up from my chair and rushed to the railing as it zipped across the sky to the east, where it then flew around in a tight circle maybe seven or eight times.

It then shot clear across the sky towards the west...far enough I had to change positions on my deck to continue watching it. Quickly, but not as fast as it had just moved, it then flew back to the east and north. At this point, it was so distant and with the bright Moon, I could barely detect it. I sat back down hoping it might reappear.

A minute or so went by, when it reappeared back in the area where it flew in circles before. It was doing this again, when it suddenly flew back towards the west and stopped roughly where I had first seen it. Just as quickly, it made what appeared to be a tight angular change (this is when I saw another red light and a blue light). At this point, it flew back to the east and out of my line of sight.

As I sat hoping it would reappear again, I noticed a plane in the southwest. The speed seemed so much slower and I realized another thing. The plane made noise. This object seemed to be silent.
