Grayish star/object moving across sky and then moving upward near Freedom NY

Hi, I'm a 55 yr old male, I live in Buffalo, NY, and I own a small hunting cabin in Freedom NY. I had never before witnessed any type of a UFO sighting before in my entire life.

I was alone at my cabin the evening of Fri, Aug 26, 2011. I had been there all day doing some outside work, and then started a small fire in the late evening. As my fire died out, I decided to look up at the sky for any shooting starts. About 10 secs after I looked into the eastern sky, I did see my first shooting star. I then looked into the western sky and I saw another shooting star, or so I thought. This star was moving west to east laterally, and then just stopped and faded out. After about 2 or 3 secs, it got bright again, and then moved again, and again faded out. It did this at least 7 or 8 times, moving at a equal distance each time and then fading out again. It then moved at a upward and outward angle from me, again getting very bright when it first moved, and then fading o! ut.

It then moved upward in a straight line, then stopping and fading out again. Then in moved inward and upward toward me, forming a backward letter 'C", then it just shot straight up into the sky until it dissappeared. I then looked at my watch, and it was approximately 10:35 pm. I would say that I observed this star/object for about 3 mins. The stars in the sky appeared to have a blueish hue to them, but this star/object appeared to be more of a bright gray color. Also of the 12 movements that I observed, the last 5 of 6, the object seemed to have a redish/orangeish glow to it after it moved, and then got gray again. Like I say, I had never before seen any type of UFO in my life, but I will leave you my contact info, if need be, feel free to contact me, and I'm also very curious if any one in my area reported anything similar.

Thank you
