Location: Eagle River, AK
Shape: Light
Duration:~20 min
Zig-zaging light moves over north horizon of Alaska town.

I live in Eagle River, Alaska. There is an air force and army base about 15 miles from here. March 31 at about midnight I went out to have a cigarette. About a minute after I got outside I looked over the horizon. There was a light with an odd haze/glow moving around just above the tree line. I decided it was an airplane until I noticed that the light stayed there for a second, zig-zaged around, and then shot down under the trees. The light then came back up to a higher area and repeated the same movement.

At this time I realized it was definitely not and airplane that I knew of. The object continued this for quite some time, at least 20 min, and then disappeared. It took place above the north horizon.
