I have no idea if what I saw was a plane or UFO. I awoke at 6 am and looked out the window to see a large amount of bright light coming from object in the sky. I stared at the object as it came across the treeline. The light would dart in the sky from side to side. Then for no reason went up faster than any other plane I have ever seen in this area. The light began to grow a slight bit dimmer as it rose and went away from me the opposite dirrection that it was moving. It seemed to have a bright light coming from the bottom. I could also see 2 beems of light coming off from it for a few minutes. This could have been do to fog or something and strobes bouncing off from it. The object then moved closer and went to the other side of the house. It was gone in no time at all.
