Amoeba-like object excretes red rod, attracts tiny lights, then vanishes.

I was walking home from a friends house. Neither of us consumed alcohol or any other perception-changing substance in the evening. As I crossed the field near my house I lit a cigarette, and some distance away saw about four other people in the school below who were drinking. I stayed on the field for a while, then noticed above me a glowing object with an unclear shape. The light of the cigarette was distracting so I put it out. The glowing thing was a dull green and just hung in the air, far above me. It was not unmoving however, as it seemed to be slightly blurry, making its exact form difficult to make out. But it was not travelling in any direction. After about a minute a red line came from the object. It was also glowing and was much brighter than the main body of the thing. At this point the people below at the school left. I believe they saw the object though can't be certain. The glowing red line cast a light on the green object and I could now see ! that it was quite cloud like and slightly transperant. It had no exact shape and appeared more like a floating blob. I was reminded of an amoeba. At this point I noticed, though with much difficulty, many tiny lights cluster around the red line, which were very small and hard to see. I watched this for a few more minutes. The red line did not go back into the main body as the object went away. It is hard to say how exactly it left as it left behind a "stain" like after image in my vision from staring at its light so long. This made it hard to tell where it had gone and how it had departed. For a short while after it had gone I noticed a quiet ringing in my ears, but am unsure whether the thing was the cause. I went home and went to bed, thoroughly mystified.
