Circular Object w/ white lights on the underside flying over Orange County, CA / Riverside County, CA 500 Lights On Object0: Yes

At 23:30 i received a call from a friend that lives in my neighborhood. I ignored the call and replied with a text message "I'm in bed, whats up?" He responded with "saw the craziest thing in the sky." I called and he said "Come out side right now, and look toward the mountain." I grabbed my girlfriend and ran outside to see a flying object flying like a falling leaf. The Object appeared to be circular with white lights in a circular pattern on the under side of the object. The white lights were not Continuous, but individual white lights. As the object flew from side to side I could see the bottom and top. The top had a red glow and appeared to blink. The object continued to fly at about 2,000ft altitude in this "falling leaf" motion. This flying pattern lasted about three to five minutes. The object then shot into the air to an altitude that I would estimate to be 4k - 6k ft in the air and shot (what I mean by shot is within a few seconds) across the sky over saddleback mountain and into riverside county, CA. We could see the object for another few minutes over the corona, ca area. We lost sight of the object at approximately 23:50 on 09/20/07.
