Craft of undetermined shape with a single strobe light hovered in the area. One had a white strobe, which turned red, then white again. Other craft had red lights which did not change. The one with the white light moved horizontally and vertically in a fairly quick manner. The others did not move a great deal. Other aircraft, with normal lights on wings and underbelly could be seen in the sky. The white strobe was brilliant; definitely not an aircraft I am familiar with. I used binoculars to get a better look. The craft seemed to be a dull white color, similar in shape to a flying wing (large and rounded in the front and narrowing to a thin edge towards the back). It was north of town, then moved to the southeast, near the area of the Capital City Airport in New Cumberland.
