Round bright light emiting random white beams of light to the west and red beams of light to the east of it. No sounds, hovering, moved

I was sitting at the beach observing the stars. There was a brighter and bigger round white light. It would randomly emit a white light to the east and a red light to the west of it. I thought it was my eyes but I didnít observe this in any other star. I thought it may be a plane but a plane went by and I saw it had blue and red lights and this object was not moving or making sounds. I thought it may be a drone because it started moving making a circle and then moved similar to a dragon fly, hovering but with jerky movements but then it froze for a long time again. Later it moved to the west the then back to the east, quickly. About an hour later it appeared smaller in diameter; initially I thought it was my imagination but about another hour later it went really farther and appeared really small and now it was emitting a red light instead of white. It totally disappeared before appearing at a great distance in red. I had to stars in the sky I was using as a reference to observe movement. Initially it moved to the right some and then farther away after making the circular movement. I observed it in the sky for 2- 2.5 hours. My daughter was with me and I pointed out to her the random beams of light to see if she observed it also and she confirmed it. My daughter was the one who initially observed the movement. I also called my husband out to see it and he did but was not curious about it like I was; he went back in the house after taking a look at it.

The following night, when I arrived at my house in Ocala, Fl, I observed the light was in the sky again about at 2200. I took a shower and went outside to see if the light was still there but it was not. Being surrounded by houses I could not see as well as when on the beach.

I researched on line to see if it could have been Mars but because of the observable circular movement with the naked eye, it could not have been Mars.
