brigth light seen in sky above Jacksnville, NC

Stepping outside to have a cigarette with my stepfather, we were sitting on his deck talking and looking up at the sky... I'm used to seeing satellites and noticed a particularly bright one only after watching it travel in a straight line I noticed that it started moving in an s formation then more erratically... initially i thought it was an illusion because the wind was blowing, and the object was moving toward the top of two tall trees in his backyard after moving myself toward the houes and making sure it was not an illusion of the trees i remarked to my dad who also noted its movements which at this point became several small movements in the same general area like it was "hovering" and adjusting itself...we were facing north and the object was straight up above and a bit to the north the object was white and very bright, also it seemed at a very high altitude.. after watching this for about five minutes we agreed tht it was just us but before going back inside we noted that the object had all but vanished.. i feel that the object was all to hight to be a helicopter and moved like no other aircraft id ever seen...
