Saucer shaped object hovers then suddendly dissappears, only to reappear again

The outside was dark, but you could see stars and the sky was clear. An object was seen hovering about 2000 feet in the air from a distance. The object was shaped as a "saucer" and was metallic looking. The saucer was on a tilt and moved around a little for about 10-15 seconds and then it suddenly jerked west and disappeared. About 3 seconds later a rapidly blinking light appeared and started to move around. It then started to depict a pattern and change it every 2 seconds as it moved at an extraordinary speed across the sky. The object moved in a non-uniform line and covered a large area in 15 seconds. I lost visibility as the object flew past trees that obstructed my view. The night before at 2:00am there was also activity in the same area in the sky; however, it was much more distant than this occurrence.
