Erratic-moving amber light in sky

Around 7:15 p.m., I observed a light in the sky which at first I thought was a star. Upon closer observation, I noticed that it was moving. It appeared in the north/western sky and was amber in color. It moved back and forth and up and down in an erratic pattern. I was not sure what I was seeing so I called my husband upstairs to observe it. He thought it was a helicopter or plane, but the lights did not really appear to blink and I have never seen either of those aircrafts move like this one did. My husband lost interest and returned to watch the playoff game downstairs. I stayed and decided to get a better look from by porch. While I was outside, the light slowly started to descend out of my view, down past the tree line. I live up on a hill off of Route 63. This light appeared to be near/over Route 8, but I could be wrong, because it was so far away. Both my husband and I are educated and "normal" people who do not give much notice to these sorts of things. If anyone else has noticed this light, I'd love to see your comments.
