Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Light the size of a star would turn on and off periodically then vanished.

My friend and I saw a circle very very high in the night sky come from one of the planet stars. I believe it was circular however, it was high up and dark so unsure. The light was a single light and got as bright as a star then would shut off. Then after a few minutes, it would shine again. The object would sparatcly light up and turn off. The object also sparatcly changed the light which came from it. It was moving slow. Much too slow for a plane. Then just vanished after about 5 minutes.
