|Object near ARSR-1E Site emitted 5 smaller objects and replicated movements from ground based light.
At approximately 0520 hours, I observed an unusual bright light simply "hovering" in place near JSS ID: QOJ (Former 799th AC&W Radar Site). I watched as it started gaining, then dropping altitude, and what appeared to be broad spotlight(s) coming from the center, and sweeping. It then dropped altitude, and out of curiosity, I grabbed my ultra bright white LED light, and used the strobe function, pointed directly at the object. The object itself started flashing, first slowly, then rapidly, then slowly again. I then switched it to fixed beam, and started slow sweeping motions, left, then right, then up and down. It followed the track of my light almost perfectly. I then turned my light off, and watched the object start making circles, then figure eights, and then stopping. It repeated these movements four or five times before I turned my light on again, and pointed it directly at the object. I repeated the sweeping motions left to right, up and down, ! and again it followed the light. I then QUICKLY moved the beam to the left, and it followed. Moved the beam to the right, it followed again. I then replicated it's movements (circles and figure eights) and it followed the beam. It was at that time I had observed a yellowish-white light coming from the bottom of the object, in a vertical axis towards the ground. It quickly gained altitude, and stopped. I also observed what appeared to be five smaller, independent objects shoot out from the center of the object, and make circles (almost as if sweeping a 3-Dimensional Perimeter) and return to the center of the object. I also noticed what appeared to be a military aircraft in the vicinity that was completely blacked out except for the one rear flashing red light as it was coming from the north. It appeared to be making a large circle around the object (I am not sure on the radius, I saw it make a shift to the south east, and then didn't see it again).
