Bright Red/Orange light hovered changed altitude rapidly "danced" dissappeared then reappeared several times.

On 9/14/10 at approximately 845 pm I went to the back yard of my residence to feed my dog. As I walked to get his bowl to give him food I observed a bright red light in the south west sky in the Williamston area close to I-85, that looked to be several thousand feet up, and thought it looked odd to be so bright. The ball of light was the size of a golfball and later marble in relation to a star. As I continued to look at the light it then dropped within a second to just above the tree level and hovered, I then ran back to my back door and yelled for my wife to come look so that I would know that I was seeing the same thing. She then looked and only saw the object hovering and commented on how bright it was. As myself and her were watching it the light then emitted another light below it which was bright orange in color. The lighted object then began to dance from left to right up and down! My wife became frightened after she realized the same thing I! apparently did and knew that the way it was moving could not have been a helicopter or airplane due to the speed and movements it was doing. The object then dropped lower below the tree line into a heavily wooded area and I could then see what looked like several bright headlights shining through the trees. As that happened I could then tell it appeared to be within a mile of my house. I then called my neighbor and another and asked for them to come outside and see what we were seeing. As all seven of us were watching it, the object then lifted back up very rapidly several hundred feet and disappeared. It then reappeared across the sky for a few moments and “danced” as it did earlier for five to six minutes. It then disappeared for the second time. We watched for almost two hours to see if it came back, but it did not. It was officially the weirdest thing I had ever seen! I did contact our local news agency and asked if they received any calls asking about the obj! ect we all saw and they stated they did receive more than a fe! w. I wi ll be watching hoping to see it again!
